Central Pacific Railway Locomotive 'Fairlie' ????

From: "Ed Workman"

I stumbled onto this at Hathi Library Trust.

And it seemed 'wrong'.

I searched your site using 'Fairlie' and got nada.

I found the list of CP locomotives.

Is there another website that might help?

Did Mason build it and sell it to another RR? ...

—Ed Workman

"Double-Bogie Locomotive for the Central Pacific Railway. Constructed, according to the plans of Mr. Robert F. Fairlie, by Messrs. William Mason and Co., Engineers, Taunton, U.S."

I kept digging.
I found the Mason list on your site and see an '0-6-6-0' built 12/71.

Elsewhere I found Fairlie "Janus" – that one- tried on the B&A and "another" RR, sold to Lehigh Valley and eventually severed into two 0-6-0's thereon.
I have yet to dig in 1872 say issues of Engineering to see if there were follow-ups.
