Long Description:
Looks to be in fair condition (exterior). Looks complete. I knew NO history of locomotive until I read the history found here. These locomotives were used to haul sugar cane to the grinding mills during harvest season. All this ended in approx. 1958. Locomotive is behind a fence and is NOT ACCESSIBLE. As of this waymarking, the grounds, Plantation house and Locomotive are just to look at through a fence. There is ALOT of free parking behind the plantation home, in the St. John School Board complex.
