Long Description:
The engine was built for Great Northern in 1923 and was intended to be used for passenger service. Donated to Klickitat County Washington by the Spokane Portland and Seattle Railway Company in 1966. It had been repainted in the SP&S color scheme and was on display near Maryhill Washington for several decades. This engine ignited hopes that it would return to live steam operation in the early 90's but those hopes were dashed and the the engine was shipped to Wishram Washington with a new paint job in 2003. The locomotive now looks as it did when it retired in 1957. Information from Lineside Legacy by Jeff Terry & Great Northern Railway Pages
