Dummy locomotive #2 named F.W. Cook
The ES&N was incorporated on Dec. 15, 1887 with authorized capital of $50,000. Prime movers in the project were Capt. Lee Howell a division freight agent for the L&N railroad, and William J. Wood, local council for the same line. Intentions were to provide access to coal mine in the vicinity of Newburgh, and to provide a short commuter service for Newburgh, then a town of 1,500.
