Engine of the Week: #110

imageThis beauty is a 2-6-6-2T articulated Mallet built by The Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1928 for the Weyerhaeuser Timber Company of Vail, WA. Its next stop was The Rayonier Lumber Company where it received a tender from Rayonier #101 and was retired in 1968. This engine was later displayed at the Wasatch Mountain Railway in Heber City, UT, and then sold to the Nevada State Railway Museum. Number 110 was sold to the Black Hills Central Railroad in 1999 and was trucked from Nevada to South Dakota on four semi-trailers. Restoration on this engine by the BHC mechanical crew was completed in 2001. It is the only 2-6-6-2T Mallet in service in the world! See what it looks like today (among other engines).
