Photos Past: A Mystery Heisler (Solved)

Here are a couple more photos given to me by Rick Boutall back in the mid sixties. This Heisler was likely photographed in 1964 or 1965 (based on the “65” imprinted on the right edge of the photo borders), and the backs are stamped with Rick’s typical property stamp. She’s obviously “hot” as small wisps of steam can be seen around the steam chest.

But I needed help on these, as I had no other information about this locomotive. Well, the mystery was solved when friend David Price provided the answer. This is Chicago Mill and Lumber Company #5, and the location is Tallulah, Louisiana. Thanks, and a hat tip to David.
