Our Diesel Locomotive #1 is a 1940-vintage Whitcomb diesel locomotive. This engine was built for the Department of Defense and was operated in Washington State during World War II. It was then purchased for switching at the Black Hills Power and Light coal-fired generating plant near Lead, SD. The # 1 was acquired in 1983 and is used for switching duties on the Black Hills Central Railroad.
