Back in October, for the 150th anniversary of the Golden Spike, the engine received a major cosmetic restoration and it looks better than ever now.

Stockton Terminal & Eastern Railroad No.1 was built for the Western Pacific in 1864 by E.S. Norris in Lancaster, Pennsylvania;t was letter "G" and name Mariposa. By 1867 the Western Pacific had run out of money, which halted construction unit the railroad was absorbed by the Central Pacific.

The Mariposa became the second Central Pacific No. 31 in 1869, replacing the first No. 31 which had blown up in Nevada early that year.

The ex-Mariposa was sold to Stockton Terminal and Eastern in 1914 where she ran continuously until she was donated in 1953 to Travel Town.
