Don's Rail Photos
The history of Olin is quite complex with mergers and divestitures over the many years of their existence. Olin Mathieson Chemical was formed by a merger of Olin Industries and Mathieson Chemical in 1954. In 1955 they purchased Brown Paper Mill and Frost Lumber and formed the Forest Products Division. This later became Olinkraft which was sold to Johns Manville in the early 1990s,
5 was built by Alco-Schenectady in September 1942, #70428, as U S Army 4002. It was sold to Brown Paper Mill Co in West Monroe, LA, as 5. It became OMC 5 in 1955 and in 1970 it was sold to the Cherokee & Southwestern. It later was sold to Lone Star Steel Co. and was in storage at their plant until moved back to Louisiana to a private museum near Baton Rouge.
