Remarks & Notes 
Putney Lumber Company Lima Shay no. 1 (blt. 1904) rests between work assignments at its namesake community in late 1963. No. 1's caretaker/engineer was an old gentleman named Bascom Fee. Mr. Fee had No. 1 in operation earlier this day, but now the boiler was cooling off, since the engine wouldn't be needed for a couple of days. The "engine terminal" at Putney was mostly a water plug with a storage track that was held together more by mud and sawdust than actual crossties. The condition of this still-operable engine had to be seen to be believed. It took a courageous (or totally idiotic) soul to build a fire in this beast and raise boiler pressure.
