According to Diebert and Strapac's Southern Pacific Company
Steam Locomotive Compendium, this locomotive is SP T-16
Class #2018. Vacated 2-1-12, became SP de M #208. Built as SP
#105, later SP #1608, and SP Arizona #25. Built 12-1880,
Schenectady 1306. This would be a pretty special engine if it
retained any original components. So, anyone seen it?
P.S. sister engine SP #106 went on to become Nevada Northern
#2 in 1905 and SP #102 went on to become California Western
#5 in 1906. Small world.

|Great Western Railway 4-6-0 No. 6000 'King George V'||Posted by: Steve Frost on 2005-02-01 17:12:12.2|
The bell was a souvenier of 'King george V's visit to the Fair of the Iron Horse - the B&O centenary clelbration in 1927. Bells aren't a usual item on UK locos, but several have them as a result of visits to the USA, or American connections. The A4 'Dominion of Canada' had one to reflect its North American connections as does the LNER K4 2-6-0 on the Severn Valley Railway (This was presented by the Pennsylvania, because of the loco's class name being the same as the famous Pennsy K4s)
The Kings are the ultimate GWR express passenger 4-6-0, with 4 cylinders and divided drive, they were the largest development of the original 4 cylinder locos, the Stars. (You can view 'Lode Star' at the National Railway Museum in York in the Yorkshire section of the UK in the browser). The layout of the cylinders goes back to the De Glehn compounds that were imported from France by the GWR at the turn of the 20th century. They were atlantics, but the GWR preferred the 4-6-0 layout, and simple expansion. Incidentally, they even built a pacific on the same lines, but it was too restricted in its routes, so, unlike the other 3 big UK companies, never built any more Pacifics. The layout of the cylinders did, however, produce pacifics on the LMS, as their designer, Stanier, was a GWR trained man.

This locomotive is owned by the Red River Valley Railway Historical Society, Inc. It was donated to them by Temple-EasTex Inc (in the '80s) if they would move it. The last I knew it was being stored on GM property.

Ok, sorry about that one. The engine was originally built for the St. Paul and Pacific. The Minnesota and Pacific only existed on paper before it reemerged as the St&P.

|West Side Lumber Shay - 3 truck No. 15||Posted by: YMSPRR Fan on 2005-01-26 21:58:02.063|
Currently, the 15 is not out of service. As it is the smaller of the Sugar Pine's two shays (#15 is 59 tons, #10 is 83 tons), it generally only sees service in the early and late months of the operating season, when passenger ridership is lower.

As of mid-2004, this locomotive had been moved up to Railtown's restoration facilities, although it was not stored indoors. Prior to its movement, it had been stored at the end of the Sierra Railway's Angels Branch.
After movement into the State Park, the locomotive's cab, running boards, and front pilot beam have been rebuilt, and the steam dome and smokestack have been reattached. Rumors have it that the locomotive might be placed on display somewhere in the Park.

Although I have been told that there are currently no plans to restore No. 7 to operation, the locomotive has been painted, and is parked on the Sierra Railway's Angels Branch at the head of a cut of cars.

#25 was converted to burn oil sometime in the 1930's. As a condition for display, boiler was gutted out & the stack was capped. Condition now is boiler jacket gone, all thin sheet metal rusting through, & cab in poor condition.

Actually, it isn't like thomas. thomas was an inner piston engine with an atatched tender. it isnt an inner piston and the tender does not "stick out". plus, thomas was a standard gauge because of the larger engine refered to as gordan. if it were any smaller, it would probubly make the boiler a couple inches above the wheels.

Rumor has it that Six Flags has now gutted the firebox, cutting out the crown sheet and backhead to make way for a chain drive to the rear axle. Whatever happened to the rule about leaving the locomotive intact?

This locomotive was modified to its present form by Bob Owen of Romeo Mich who had it on display at his sign shop in the relocated Washington Depot. My friend and I worked for him as kids growing up in the area. As I recall, the loco was recovered from the bottom of a lake in a quarry in Canada in pretty sad shape sometime around 1968. As noted, many of the parts were made up in order to put it on display at Bob's Whistle Stop & Southern. It was displayed at 29 mile and Van Dyke with an ex DUR Interurban and an ex PM Caboose until Bob retired in the early 80's when he sold the loco and cab to Shelby Township. The Interurban went to Mich Transit Museum. Bob was a true gentlemen and a railfan all his life. The Depot was his passion as well as his place of business. It was filled with RR artifacts of all kinds and my friend and I worked as tour guides most weekends giving rides to the public behind speeders and hand cars that ran along the property next to the GTW main. Our Stoney Creek Model railroad club would hold meetings in the interurban. Bob's father worked on the DUR out of Romeo. The Depot is a party store now. Some of the "passenger" cars we used to pull with the speeders are still on display at the Orchard next to the depot.
