Built in 1911 by Philadelphia's Baldwin Locomotive Works, this locomotive was first used to transport timber in Florida. In the 1920's it was purchased for use in Texas' logging industry by the Angelina County-based Carter-Kelley Lumber Company. The locomotive traveled between Angelina and Polk County mill towns on Houston, East and West Texas railway tracks picking up logs and finished lumber that frequently had been hauled from local cutting areas by oxen. In use until 1952, the No.5 contributed to the area's timber industry.
