The curious-looking locomotive here shown has been built by the Curtis Manufacturing Company of St. Louis, for logging purposes, and to run on track where wooden longs are used for rails. ***** DO NOT COPY ****  Violators will be prosecuted!  gearedsteam.com


The cylinders are 7 x 10 inches, and transmit power to a supplementary shaft which carries sprocket wheels that transmit the power to the driving wheel axels by means of chains. The speed at which the engine is intended to work is about 5 miles an hour, and it is said to give very satisfactory service.
