Hayes Run Fire Brick Co. #2 - s/n 1138
Built 1908 - 48" gauge - 22 tons - 2 trucks 

The locomotive pictured operated on the company's Mountain View Railroad near Orviston, Pennsylvania.  The town of Hayes Run became Orviston in 1904.
The image is part of the Ralph Flanagan collection.  It appeared in an issue of the "The Lock Haven Express" newspaper.

Klise, A. B. - Lumber Co. #2 - s/n (unknown)
Built ???? - 36" gauge - ?? tons - 2 trucks 

The pictured locomotive is near Sturgeon Bay, Michigan
The photo is part of the Claude Thomas Stoner collection at the University of Michigan's Bentley Historical Library ~ Photo #HS7427.

Per the Michigan Railroads and Railroad Companies the Klise Lumber Co's railroad was 36" gauge.   The company owned the Cecil Bay Lumber Co. and the Sturgeon Bay Lumber Co.  Close examination of the lettering on the fuel bunker of the pictured locomotive "seems" to show the letters "S B L C". This would be consistent with the Sturgeon Bay Lumber Co.   While a "2" can be seen painted on the side of the cab below the window, the round road number plate in the center front of the boiler shows a "4".  There is no entry in the Heisler builders/owners records we have for any of the three aforementioned companies.

The locomotive, owned by the Solvay Process Co., was one of two Heislers the company operated at the quarry.  Both (s/n 1385 & 1386) were two truck, 36 ton, standard gauge units built the same year.  It is unknown which of the two carried the #12 road number.

Winston-Dear Co. #46 - s/n 1165 - near Coos Bay, Oregon
Built 08/1909 - Std gauge - 23 tons - 2 trucks 130
 
The photo is held at the Douglas County Museum,
Roseburg, Oregon ~ ID:N8604

The details on this photo are a mystery.  Winston-Dear was based in Minneapolis, Minnesota with no operations outside that state that we can find.  The photo's source notes the locomotive was "Winston-Dear Co. #46" and is pictured near Coos Bay, Oregon circa 1910.   From what we can discern from the poor resolution of the image, lettering for "Winston-Dear" and "46" seem to appear on the locomotive.   Additionally, the terrain and size of the logs do lend credence to a western coast setting.   After the company sold the locomotive, it operated first near Coquille, Oregon and later Norway, Oregon (near Coos Bay) per the Heisler owner records.
