   Notes  

1

 Renumbered into IC series in September of 1900.  

2

 Either PD&E #2 or #11 (or perhaps both) had an electric headlight.  

3

 3' gauge   

4

 An ICC report dated 1879 declares that the PL&D had no equipment of its own, but leased it from a company in "NY."

 

Photos

   Photos of locomotives are extremely hard to come by.  So far only a few are known to exist:  

   Photo of PD&E locomotive #11, a 4-4-0 with tender, in June of 1880. See Roster 

   Photo of PD&E locomotive #15, a 4-4-0 with tender, and a small sliver of what appears to be a PD&E stock car.  One could theorize that livestock was an important commodity - something that is corroborated by the ubiquitous live stock pens at every station.

   Photo of PD&E locomotive #23, from August 16th, 1898 at Mackinaw Falls, near Peoria, Illinois.
