Weyerhaeuser's first #110, built in 1928, was the first of Weyerhaeuser's many logging mallets. After a long career on Weyerhaeuser's Vail, WA line, #110 was sold to Rayonier in 1954. With Rayonier, the Mallet operated on the Grays Harbor line until 1966. During this time #110 received a tender from Rayonier 2-8-2 #101. Retired in 1968, #110 was sold to the Promontory Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society. In 1971, #110 was transferred to the Wasatch Railroad Museum and placed on display at Heber City, Utah. In 1993, #110 went to the Nevada State Railway Museum and was placed in storage at Boulder City, Nevada. After several years in storage #110 was sold in 1999 to the Black Hills Central Railroad, a tourist railway at Hill City, South Dakota. By mid-1999, 110 had already been moved to South Dakota and work began to restore the Mallet for use on the railroad. #110 returned to steam in January 2001. #110 is currently the only operational Logging Mallet in North America.
