Davidson, Hicks & Greene Co. #5 - s/n 1370
Built 1918 - Std gauge - 47 tons - 2 trucks 130
 
The locomotive operated near Cowan, Tennessee.
The photo is from the David Brock collection.

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.
