Re: Port Huron & Northwestern Wyoming Valley Machine Co

Wyoming Valley Machine Company became part of Vulcan Locomotive (Wilkes Berg PA) in 1889. The two companies seem to have a single combined locomotive construction number system.

It appears that WVMCo built 7 locomotives for the Port Huron & North Western. Dates are uncertain, but thought to be 1880-1881. Only one locomotive number is known, No 12, a 4-4-0. Locomotives listed in construction number (c/n) order, noting that c/n 16-115 were skipped (alternately starting with c/n 16/116 a 1 was added ahead of the construction number.)

No ?, 2-6-0 Wyoming Valley Machine Company (Vulcan Iron Works) c/n 10, c. 1880 12x18

No ?, 2-6-0 Wyoming Valley Machine Company c/n 11, c. 1880, 12x18

No ?, 4-4-0, 12x16, Wyoming Valley Machine Company c/n 12, c. 1880 12x18

No 12 4-4-0, 12x16, Wyoming Valley Machine Company (Vulcan Iron Works) c/n 13, c. 1880

No ?, 2-6-0 Wyoming Valley Machine Company c/n 117, c. 1880, 12x18

No ?, 2-6-0 Wyoming Valley Machine Company c/n 118, c. 1880, 12x18

No ?, 2-6-0 Wyoming Valley Machine Company c/n 119, c. 1880, 12x18

Dispositions for the first 4 are unknown, the last three, c/n 117-119 all were sold to Jefferson Coal Co of Glen PA

Also, after 1900, the Pere Marquette "renumbered" its narrow gauge locomotives, substituting letters. So c/n 117 became D
