/*I included all 2-6-0s in case they did renumbered it.
I would suggest contacting Tom Lawson as he has studied McGowin-Foshee intensely for his never to be published Florida Panhandle Logging book.

As a side note J Ray Arnold Lbr Co. at Olustee, Fla owned a Lima 2-6-0, a number 7 that he acquired when he purchased the Goethe-Walling Mill there. Lima 1109 2/10. I have a good picture of it taken in 1933, if you need a photo showing what a small 2-6-0 looked like but she has the cabbage stack.

I'm interested in locomotives and equipment used at the McGowin-Foshee mill at Willow, FL. Among their historical notes is a Lima engine number 4 which had a straight stack and came from a "northern" company. I believe it was a 2-6-0. Searching the Lima records in Eric Hirsimanki's book "Lima- the history", I found the following 2-6-0's that had a number 4 applied:

Lima # 1025 Tallulah Falls no. 4 (Sold by Tallulah Falls Ry about 1910) but who bought it?

Lima # 1071 Natchez Ball & Shreveport no. 4

Lima # 1115 Chicago Memphis & Gulf no. 4

Lima # 1194 Ledbejeff & Co. no. 4
Can anyone provide histories on any of these locomotives? One of them may be the former Willow engine.

The main locomotive at Willow was a Baldwin 2-6-2 and it was scrapped after the mill shut down.

Also, any other info on the Willow operation would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim Herron

Lima 1194 2-6-0 LEBEDJEFF & CO. # 4 was 2 foot gauge as was Lima 1189
LEBEDJEFF & CO # 1 a 0-4-2.
This might help eliminate these as potential McGowin-Foshee units.
