QuoteF. J. LAVINO and CO. #1291This saddletank coal-burner switch engine was built by the American Locomotive Company, Paterson, New Jersey, June 16, 1923, at the company's 19th-century Cooke Works. The engine, which was Builder's No. 64764, is a Class 060-T-123, meaning it has six drivers, no pilot or trailing wheels, carries its 1,700 gallons of water in tanks astride its boiler, and was designed to weigh 123,000 pounds. It is 32 feet 3-1/2 inches long, 9 feet 10-1/2 inches wide, and 13 feet 3-1/2 inches high, weighs 117,440 pounds (58.72 tons), and has 44 inch drivers, 17 inch x 24 inch cylinders, 180 pound boiler pressure, Stephenson valve gear, and 24,200 pounds of tractive effort. It carries 1-1/2 tons of coal in a bunker on the rear of its frame. With no tender, the 0-6-OT had excellent rearward visibility.The engine was delivered new to the F. J. Lavino and Co., a fish-packing firm, as No. 1291. Lettered in various schemes, with yellow trim and cab and bunker "L" monograms and white wheel rims, it served as a busy Thunder Bay yard switcher until retired when the Pineshore-Cold Lake Short Line was abandoned in the mid 1950s. Local residents called it, based on its appearance and the color its smoke left their wash when it was hung outside, the "Grey Mouse."
