Sierra Railroad 4-6-0 No. 3Posted by: daniel Lindsey on 2005-07-13 08:51:01.8
The City of Parsons is in the process of building a museum for the area. Parsons, Tennessee was built as a railroad town and the Tennessee Midland Railroad later to become part of the Lousiville, Nashville & Chattagoona and late the Nashville Louisville "L&N" started operations in 1889. The short line route passing through Parsons became known as the "Pee Vine" Route. In 1936 due to the advent of a highway bridge over the Tennessee River near Parsons and the inability of the Railroad to Build a Railroad bridge at the location the Railroad ceased operation along this route. The primary Locamotive used at the time and over the preceeding years between World War I and 1936 was called the Cannon Ball and was numbered 201. We are trying to research the history of that locomotive. Many thought it to be a Baldwin, however, as we continue to research it appears in may have been a Rogers. It is a 4-6-0 with the rear wheels of the 6 spaced rearward of the other two forward 4 of the 6. On locating your site we find that our 201 looks almost exactly like your #3. Where can I contact someone who has info on this type locomotive or might be able to give me some info on your locomotive that I might use to further research. Yours is the only locomotive I have located that is like our 201 "CannonBall"
