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.
