Actually its a 10 1/2 tonner.

Ken,

Here is what I know of it.

The text I saved with the pic reads.....

It's a ten and a half ton, 2 cylinder Shay.

It was the only engine in the Molino Timber Co.

One of only 4 engines built to this small size.

Lima plan #2203

It says it was sold to the  Loma Prieta Lumber Company in 1918 and
it was scrapped there in the 1930's.

I saved the photo so long ago I cannot remember where it came from....my best bet is I found it on that Clark Kinsey Photo site???
