This 0-6-0 was built by Lima in 1924 as Texas & New Orleans Class S-14 #156, renumbered #842 in 1953. Two years later, it was sold to Green Brothers Sand & Gravel and worked at the company's plant in Franklinton, LA. Weighing 155,100 lbs with 54" drivers and 20" x 26" cylinders, this oil burning switcher operated at a boiler pressure of 180 psi and delivered 31,000 tractive effort.
#842 was donated to the Casey Jones Museum in Vaughn, MS, in 1982 when, for some reason, it was renumbered #841. When the museum closed, #841 was moved to its current location by the early 1980s Terry, MS, Illinois Central depot. It sported a rather incongruous replacement steel boiler jacket when I visited. Let's hope it's painted black some time soon!
