Log Hauling in California in the 1880s – Part II

Searching for clues to log hauling English engines in the woods of California.

Aveling no. 2146
Aveling no. 2146 at Forbestown, Calif., with empty timber trucks in tow after it had been sold to Henry South of Challenge in May 1891. Forbestown is about 3 miles northwest of Challenge and, at the time, the engine was recorded as being used by James Young. It is not known whether the engine was sold by South to Young, or whether South worked for Young, perhaps on contract.
