There were several builders of Fordson locomotives in Washington but none of them are shown here. The top photo shows a product of the Westminster Iron Works of New Westminster, BC and the bottom photo was taken in New Zealand. If interested I can provide a copy of my research on this subject.

Thanks John. If you would like to forward a copy of your research, that would be great.

There was a Fordson logging locomotive used in the Hixtown Swamp in Madison county, Florida in the 1920’s. It is still in the swamp per the man who drove it who I interviewed many years ago. Myself and others have tried to find it to no avail. It ran on tracks for miles hauling virgin cypress to a temporary mill on the edge of the swamp. Never knew there was much interest in these locomotives until I found this site !
