The lower photo shows the locomotive's cab is still lettered for its previous owner, Sobey Manufacturing Co.   Although much fainter, the upper photo shows the same Sobey lettering many years later in its service life.    The host's narrative accompanying the upper photo incorrectly states the locomotive is s/n 900.  The two duplicate photos of a Climax in the lower left arrangement of photos on the Granite Falls link page are not of s/n1005.

In the photograph, the locomotive is at the Southern Iron & Equipment Co. (SIEC) in Atlanta, Georgia.  This company was a dealer in used locomotives and other equipment.   The photo looks to be taken shortly after WVPPC purchased the locomotive from SIEC in April, 1912, but before its transport to WVPPCs  operations near Dobbins Siding, West Virginia.   The metal placard on the ground below the locomotive cab is lettered #807.   This was the unique stock number assigned to the locomotive by SIEC when it acquired the locomotive from a previous owner.
