Here is an enlargement of Engine No. 7 from the 1880s photo of New London
Engine No. 7 began service on the Green Bay
& Lake Pepin RR on June 6, 1873. It was built by Grant
Locomotive Works of Patterson New Jersey for $12,250 and named CHARLES RUSSELL
but soon renamed WINONA in honor
of the Minnesota terminus of the railroad. ( I wonder what Charles Russell
thought about that!)
Number 7 was probably the Green Bay Route locomotive which was sold to the newly-constructed Ahnapee &
Western in November 1892, where it was renumbered A&W #1 and finally traded to the
railroad car refurbishing company Hicks Loco And Car Works at the end of 1902 for A&W #3. The history of the locomotive after that point is unknown.
