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.

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.

Locomotive" appearing on page 417 of the June, 1897 issue of Locomotive Engineering.
