Booth-Kelly Lumber Co. No. 2 is a 2-6-6-2T "Articulated" steam locomotive. It was built in January of 1910 by the Baldwin locomotive works for Booth Kelly Lumber Company.

The locomotive was used to operate on the Booth-Kelly Lumber Company's logging railroad operated in the area around Wendling, Oregon, northeast of Eugene.

The No. 2 was successful in service, although it was the only logging Mallet of its type until 1920 when Booth-Kelly #6 was ordered.

By the 1940's Booth-Kelly generally used skeleton log cars, although before 1920 flat cars equipped with logs bunks were used.

The locomotive operated until 1945, when it and the Booth-Kelly's other steam locomotives were retired.

The locomotive remained in storage until 1947 when it was now scrapped.
