    No, this wasn't from an amusement park! I went up to "Tour-Ed Mine" near Pittsburgh last week. They had an old mine engine, mine cars, etc. Thought somebody would find this interesting.

    Nice little loco, have seen many much like that in use on the Mines around here. Found this loco when visiting a Steam driven pumping Station. The loco as used to haul ash from the Boiler house. Queer little imp ,on closer inspection found it had a deisel engine mounted in the boiler and was chain driven

    Very similiar to the GE 25 Tonner I am allowed to operate at SilverBend Farms outside of Clarksburg, Ca. Cool seeing another picture of a small industrial switcher!!!
