To me the drivers look sort of small, but then just to have a living, breathing loco at Como wouldbean asset for the area. I like little locos. I own two C&S moguls and a little 4-4-0 american. But little praries have a special place in my heart. I just can't wait for more information on the loco.

On my trip out to Colorado my Dad and I road the Georgetown Loop Railroad.
After the trip I asked about the Tender for 'Klondike Kate' No 4.
They let us in to the shops to check it out.
We got to talk to a Man that had done work on it. (Not recalling his name now.)
He said he rebuilt the breaks on it. Had to fabricate a few things. One of which was a new coupler pocket.
Moved the water hatch back to the rear of the Tender. It had been moved to the front to make room for 2 propane tanks. The loco had run on propane for a little while.
They where working on getting it to operational condition. Not restoring it all.
(I say.. As long as it runs. I am happy..)
