I found a picture from August 10th of this locomotive post-Lahaina fire. The photo shows the mayor of Lahaina walking in front of the locomotive as he inspects the destruction from the fire. While it looks like the Lahaina, Kaanapali & Pacific depot is gone, this locomotive does not appear to have experienced any major damage from the fire.

Does anyone know of the exact date (month & year will be sufficient) that this locomotive was removed from Travel Town?

This engine is named the Waikakalua and is currently on static display at the Lahaina and Kaanapali Railroad in Maui. Saw her this past summer on a triip there. It is one of three surviving Oahu Sugar steam engines left in the world.

This engine was originaly owned by the Waialua Agricultural Company. It now sits outside the main station.

This locomotive is no longer at Travel Town. I visit the museum regularly and it is not there.  The February 1994 issue of Trains magazine (page 73) mentions that this locomotive - Oahu Sugar Co. No. 5 - was traded to the LK&P RR along with Oahu RR No. 85 for a Baldwin diesel from the California Western RR plus some streamlined passenger cars. The photo shown here was taken in the late 70s when the locomotive was still at Travel Town.

Sorry to burst your balloon, but that locomotive as shown in the picture is NOT in Hawaii, but rather is in Travel Town, a train museum in Griffith Park, CA. I am quite familiar with that engine, and the view in the photo, having been there thousands of times.
