Builders identical twin to #12 and US Navy Fleet Supply Base - South Brooklyn Section
   #1 (c/n 6366) & #2 (c/n 6367) (all have consecutive SN's)

BEDT documents dated June 24, 1963 request $2,500 asking price of #13.

Non-BEDT documents show #13 was sold to G. Hart. Moved to Reading, PA; 1968

One of the driver tires from No. 13 now serves as a fire bell hanger at the front entrance
   of the Chalfont Fire Company in Chalfont, PA.

Popularly (but erroneously) believed to have been a Brooklyn Navy Yard locomotive.
It did operate in Brooklyn, NY; but at the Fleet Supply Base, not the Navy Yard.
