That is an awesome locomotive. Thank you for sharing.
This past weekend we were in Snoqualmie and stopped at the railroad museum. Outside of one of the sheds was this locomotive waiting it's turn to be restored.
I used to know what that tank loco's story was, but it's been soooo long, I can't remember. The Mt. Rainier Museum has an 0-6-0T they use on their excursions.
Unfortunately we didn't have much time at the museum, so I don't know it's story either. But, we plan to go back soon, so hopefully I will learn more about it.
I have never seen the one at the Mt. Rainier museum. Going to have to put that one on the list.

Thanks Andrew, I'm definitely going to check that place out.
Saw the trolley again on Saturday.
That's actually pretty cool.
Seeing a need for a modern high-speed-gasoline-powered train car for short runs the Clark Equipment Company of Buchanan, MI constructed a pair of “AutoTram” Streamliners in 1932. The vehicle in the lead image weighed twenty-six thousand pounds and seated forty passengers in the all-aluminum alloy coachwork featuring a forced ventilation and heating system, it was constructed by the Aluminum Company of America.
For comfort and a smooth ride, the “AutoTram” featured Clark-Goodrich resilient wheels consisting of an inner rubber cushion and a cast steel wheel. Power for the train car was provided by an OHV Series 452 V-16 Cadillac engine producing one-hundred and sixty-five h.p. The three-inch bore by four-inch stroke engine was fed by two single-barrel updraft carburetors. A dual exhaust system exited below the tapered tail at the rear of the coachwork.
