Adams and Price of Nashville produced this chain drive engine for a saw mill in Alabama in 1884. It was intended for slow speed operations on "pole roads," a cheap form of railway constructed from tree trunks. Note the cup shaped wheels necessary to traverse such lines. Similar engines were produced in Richmond, Virginia. The design was after a patent of W. E. Cole. (Recent Locomotives, Fig. 369)
