Rosters ETV&G in Particular

ALLEN STANLEY
 

Hi All,


For a group with well over a hundred members interested in rosters this is an awfully quiet list. Is anyone working on anything right now?


I have finally started in earnest on my all time Southern Ry roster set. I am working on the East Tennessee Virginia & Georgia lineage right now. As with any old rosters there are always voids in information, particularly for the roads that went through the war. I have a pretty good accounting of the East Tennessee & Virginia and the East Tennessee & Georgia but with the formation of the East Tennessee Virginia & Georgia things get tough. I have an ETV&G 7/1870 annual report which was the first one I believe with a list of 33 locos but only the road numbers, builders, build date and cyl/drvr specs and no real way to know which predecessor loco got which number. The report says 39 locos were brought in and 6 had already been dropped. I can figure out a lot of the locos by builder and specs but not many of the others. The ones that were dropped are a real mystery.


Has anyone seen any documentation on the early ETV&G locos? The later ones are easier to track as many were new.


One of the real mysteries is a Portland loco on the ET&G. Portland only built a handful for southern roads and I can account for most of them. One says sold to the Lexington & Danville but the L&D records don't show it. One Portland builders list I have which was supposedly copied from the original files up in Maine has a note for the L&D loco which says sold to ET&G & named Kentucky. This is CN #55. On the ET&G roster the name is John P King a noted Ga citizen. The specs in the builders list are the same as what the annual reports show so this is probably the same loco later renamed.  Anyone have any ideas?


Surely someone is working on some rosters. I know Bob Lehmuth and Doug Cummings are working on builders lists but how about anyone else. We all have a common interest so how about starting some new projects and maybe getting others involved? This data is vanishing along with many of us still with an interest. Why not put our mutual resources to work?

Hi Allen,
I'm still working on the BU-C RR.   Still looking for the elusive first locos purchased/leased/rented prior to 1905.  Also looking for early  electric info for the same line.  They had some passenger cars, and freight, but I haven't found any records for their purchases.

I do have some sales records for GC&L, SI&E and BR&L that include more than locos. I'll try to remember to put them on a flash drive and put in dropbox Wed when I come back to work if work is still here. Closing by months end at latest. Also have some electric builders records and car builders as well. Will include them too.

Hi Doug,

I did join. Hope it takes off, but fear those of us interested in documenting this stuff are an ever shrinking group.

this is an awfully quiet list. Is anyone working on anything
right now?  I have finally started in
earnest on my all time Southern Ry roster set. I am working
on the East Tennessee Virginia & Georgia lineage right
now. As with any old rosters there are always voids in

the war. I have a pretty good accounting of the East
Tennessee & Virginia and the East Tennessee &
Georgia but with the formation of the East Tennessee
Virginia & Georgia things get tough. I have an
ETV&G 7/1870 annual report which was the first one I
believe with a list of 33 locos but only the road numbers,
builders, build date and cyl/drvr specs and no real way to
know which predecessor loco got which number. The report
says 39 locos were brought in and 6 had already been

was supposedly copied from the original files up in Maine
has a note for the L&D loco which says sold to ET&G
& named Kentucky. This is CN #55. On the ET&G roster
the name is John P King a noted Ga citizen. The specs in the
builders list are the same as what the annual reports show
so this is probably the same loco later renamed.  Anyone
have any ideas?  Surely someone is working on
some rosters. I know Bob Lehmuth and Doug Cummings are
working on builders lists but how about anyone else. We all

Thanks Allen, much appreciate all the help.  Are you saying the Great Escape is closing?  I hadn't heard that; it would be a bad thing for hobbyists.

I have started a newsgroup called
LocomotiveWorld for just that purpose, to exchange data and
ask questions. But it need members to function properly. It
is a googlegroups group.     Hi All,  For a
group with well over a hundred members interested in rosters
this is an awfully quiet list. Is anyone working on anything
right now?  I have finally started in
earnest on my all time Southern Ry roster set. I am working
on the East Tennessee Virginia & Georgia lineage right
now. As with any old rosters there are always voids in
information, particularly for the roads that went through
the war. I have a pretty good accounting of the East
Tennessee & Virginia and the East Tennessee &
Georgia but with the formation of the East Tennessee
Virginia & Georgia things get tough. I have an
ETV&G 7/1870 annual report which was the first one I
believe with a list of 33 locos but only the road numbers,
builders, build date and cyl/drvr specs and no real way to
know which predecessor loco got which number. The report
says 39 locos were brought in and 6 had already been
dropped. I can figure out a lot of the locos by builder and
specs but not many of the others. The ones that were dropped
are a real mystery.  Has anyone seen any
documentation on the early ETV&G locos? The later ones
are easier to track as many were new.  One of
the real mysteries is a Portland loco on the
ET&G. Portland only built a handful for southern
roads and I can account for most of them. One says sold to
the Lexington & Danville but the L&D records
don't show it. One Portland builders list I have which
was supposedly copied from the original files up in Maine
has a note for the L&D loco which says sold to ET&G
& named Kentucky. This is CN #55. On the ET&G roster
the name is John P King a noted Ga citizen. The specs in the
builders list are the same as what the annual reports show
so this is probably the same loco later renamed.  Anyone
have any ideas?  Surely someone is working on
some rosters. I know Bob Lehmuth and Doug Cummings are

Hi All,


For a group with well over a hundred members interested in rosters this is an awfully quiet list. Is anyone working on anything right now?


I have finally started in earnest on my all time Southern Ry roster set. I am working on the East Tennessee Virginia & Georgia lineage right now.

I have a pretty good accounting of the East Tennessee & Virginia and the East Tennessee & Georgia but with the formation of the East Tennessee Virginia & Georgia things get tough. I have an ETV&G 7/1870 annual report which was the first one I believe with a list of 33 locos but only the road numbers, builders, build date and cyl/drvr specs and no real way to know which predecessor loco got which number.

Just finished scanning a 1958 UP frt car dgm book if interested. Now back to the ETV&G. Job is going away at months end so starting up job hunting again. Not fun at 70.

Virginia & Georgia things get tough. I have an ETV&G
7/1870 annual report which was the first one I believe with
a list of 33 locos but only the road numbers, builders,
build date and cyl/drvr specs and no real way to know which
predecessor loco got which number. The report says 39 locos
were brought in and 6 had already been dropped. I can figure
out a lot of the locos by builder and specs but not many of
the others. The ones that were dropped are a real mystery.
Has anyone seen any documentation on the early ETV&G
locos? The later ones are easier to track as many were new.
One of the real mysteries is a Portland loco on the
ET&G. Portland only built a handful for southern roads
and I can account for most of them. One says sold to the
Lexington & Danville but the L&D records don't
show it. One Portland builders list I have which was
supposedly copied from the original files up in Maine has a
note for the L&D loco which says sold to ET&G &
named Kentucky. This is CN #55. On the ET&G roster the
name is John P King a noted Ga citizen. The specs in the
builders list are the same as what the annual reports show
so this is probably the same loco later renamed. Anyone
have any ideas? Surely someone is working on some rosters.
I know Bob Lehmuth and Doug Cummings are working on builders
lists but how about anyone else. We all have a common
interest so how about starting some new projects and maybe
getting others involved? This data is vanishing along with
many of us still with an interest. Why not put our mutual
resources to work? Allen Stanley Greer, SC

Hi All, For a group with well over a hundred members

interested in rosters this is an awfully quiet list. Is

anyone working on anything right now? I have finally

started in earnest on my all time Southern Ry roster set.
I

am working on the East Tennessee Virginia & Georgia

lineage right now. As with any old rosters there are
always

voids in information, particularly for the roads that
went

through the war. I have a pretty good accounting of the
East

Tennessee & Virginia and the East Tennessee &

Georgia but with the formation of the East Tennessee

Virginia & Georgia things get tough. I have an
ETV&G

7/1870 annual report which was the first one I believe
with

a list of 33 locos but only the road numbers, builders,

build date and cyl/drvr specs and no real way to know
which

predecessor loco got which number. The report says 39
locos

were brought in and 6 had already been dropped. I can
figure

out a lot of the locos by builder and specs but not many
of

the others. The ones that were dropped are a real mystery.


Has anyone seen any documentation on the early ETV&G

locos? The later ones are easier to track as many were new.


One of the real mysteries is a Portland loco on the

ET&G. Portland only built a handful for southern
roads

and I can account for most of them. One says sold to the

Lexington & Danville but the L&D records
don't

show it. One Portland builders list I have which was

supposedly copied from the original files up in Maine has
a

note for the L&D loco which says sold to ET&G
&

named Kentucky. This is CN #55. On the ET&G roster
the

name is John P King a noted Ga citizen. The specs in the

builders list are the same as what the annual reports
show

so this is probably the same loco later renamed. Anyone

have any ideas? Surely someone is working on some
rosters.

I know Bob Lehmuth and Doug Cummings are working on
builders

lists but how about anyone else. We all have a common

interest so how about starting some new projects and
maybe

getting others involved? This data is vanishing along
with

many of us still with an interest. Why not put our
mutual

resources to work? Allen Stanley Greer, SC
