    Chelatchie Prairie Railroad buys 2-8-2T No. 10

    Published: November 19, 2012
    BATTLE GROUND, Wash. – The Chelatchie Prairie Railroad has purchased former Crossett-Western 2-8-2T No. 10 from its previous group of owners. The locomotive, previously owned by a group of four, was involved in a legal dispute between its owners who had leased the locomotive to the railroad. Now, the railroad owns it outright.

    Alco built the 80-ton saddle tank locomotive in 1929 for the Crossett Western Co. of Wauna, Ore. It has also worked for Hammond Lumber Co. and Georgia-Pacific Corp. in California.

    The railroad plans to use proceeds from its upcoming runs to restore the locomotive to operating condition. More information on the railroad and its operations are available online at www.bycx.com.

    What work is needed on the steamer? Such as flues? Or?

    I think this is the twin to the Hammond #11 that is at Mt Rainier Scenic.

    cwwrman, you are right. They were sisters at Crossett-Western, numbered 10 and 11, and sisters at Hammond Lumber, numbered 16 and 17. Here is Crossett-Western 10, photographed at the Chelatchie Prairie in 2007. No. 10 needs a lot of work to get back to operating. Saw some photos on another site where she is missing a pair of drivers and a lot of other stuff. Chelatchie Prairie is a neat tourist operation and this is good news that they now own no. 10.

    And Hammond Lumber 17 photographed at Mt. Rainier Scenic in the 1990s.

    I think, but I am not entirely sure, that these 2 locos at one time were stored at Grays Harbor Forest Products in Shelton along with Rayonier #8.

    I don't know if they were. Here is a better shot of Hammond 17 from 2009 at Mt. Rainier Scenic. Same side as C-W 10 for better comparison. That's Jim Abney taking care of her.
