referring to the sarcastic post 14 here
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=44658
will show how two identical sisters can look like depending on their home.

Industrial Lumber of Elizabeth, LA buy 4 identical six-coupled double-ender logging engines class 10-26-1/4D from Baldwin,
101 in 1912,
103 in 1916,
106/107 in 1919.

Surprisingly 2 of them survived today.

The first:
Industrial Lumber Co. #101 at Elizabeth, LA
Gulf Refining Co. #5 at Beaumont, TX
Calcasieu Paper Co. #5 at Elizabeth, LA
several private owners
now in front of a Casino in Kansas City, MO

The last:
Industrial Lumber Co. #107 at Elizabeth, LA
Calcasieu Paper Co. #107 at Elizabeth, LA
several private owners
now operational at Fort Edmonton Park, CAN

You can decide who is Cinderella...

Interesting "turtle back" tender on number 5 (I.L.Co. 101). Wonder which of its previous owners put that behind the 2-6-2?

I don't know who put that "THING" (tender) behind #5.
My guess it was Gulf Refining, that name implies they had easy access to oil fuel.
That half barrel thing can certainly only carry oil and water no wood anymore.
