"Bell Locomotive Works Under New Management"
Engineering and Contracting - October 19, 1921

 

 

Bell 5-ton Steam Driven Geared Locomotive of Saddle Tank and Open Cab Type.
 

The Bell Locomotive Works, Bloomsburg, Pa., has been reorganized and placed under new management.  The present board of directors consists of A. B. Hartman, president; E. S. Stackhouse, vice president; W. R. Kocher, treasurer; R. F. Ensminger, secretary, and H. K. Stokes. The present management has adopted a policy whereby responsible concerns or individuals may take the product on 30 to 60 days' trial, at the end of which period, if the customer is not entirely satisfied the locomotive may be returned without cost to him.  The company builds both steam and gasoline industrial locomotives.  The steam locomotive uses oil exclusively for firing, and any grade of oil may be used.  It is of a geared type, making it especially adaptable for steep grades, long and heavy pulls.  The engine runs in an oil tight dust proof case and requires practically no attention.  This type of locomotive is built in sizes 2   to 15 ton.  The gasoline locomotive has a well known Buda motor for motive power and has incorporated in it all the best features known to the present day in this type of locomotive.  They have specialized in two sizes, 3 and 6 ton, which are built for any gage tracks; special sizes are built when customer so desires.  At the present time the State Highway Department of Pennsylvania has five 7-ton steam driven locomotives in operation in its road construction work at Trout Run, Pa.  These are used to haul the batch boxes containing cement, sand and stone to the mixer.***** DO NOT COPY ****  Violators will be prosecuted!  gearedsteam.com
