"Dewey Locomotive Takes Any Grade"
Brick & Clay Record - July 15, 1913

 


Special Type for Clay Plants Proves Efficient and Essential


A Few years ago it was thought with the installation of trackage and small dump car pulled by a mule or a tram hoist, the very acme of efficency had been obtained in clay haulage from the pit. With the advent of the modern clay plant, with its large capacity and the increased demand for greater efficiency in clay haulage the clay worker began to look about for a better and more imporved method of getting his clay from the pit and especially where there was long haulage. This demand has brought out the steam locomotive and other methods of haulage.*** DO NOT COPY ****  Violators will be prosecuted!  gearedsteam.com
The Dewey steam locomotive, built originally for lumber camps and similar work, was found to be the most economical engine for brick yards and it will be found pulling a train of cars in yards in every section of the country.  *** DO NOT COPY ****  Violators will be prosecuted!  gearedsteam.com

The Dewey engine, because of its exclusive design, is especially adapted to the clay plant and owing to its extreme lightness and its great pulling power, and its flexibility, it readily can go into and out of most any clay pit with ease. The Dewey is chain driven and will take practically any grade without effort.  *** DO NOT COPY ****  Violators will be prosecuted!  gearedsteam.com

Dewey Brothers, of Goldsboro, N. C. are the manufacturers of this type of locomotive and have a special catalog which they are mailing to brickmakers, upon request.
