5 known to be built per the information above.

C/Ns (A thru D?)   -  According to the article "A Geared Locomotive For Contractor's Use", four Byers locomotives had been built by May 21, 1896.   Three of these were known to be in service by the owners noted in the table above.   The A - D were assigned by this web author to denote these four (4) separate locomotives.   The true construction numbers (C/N) are unknown.    

It is quite interesting to note the several year lapse between the date the article was written and the 1906 build date of c/n 160.    This might lead one to believe there may have been more than 5 documented locomotives built.
