Steam Saturday: 20th Century 4-4-0

June 12, 2021

Last week I showed examples of 4-4-0 steam locomotive built in the 1800s. Here is an example of one built in 1916 that is still in use. We saw No. 4, Roy O. Disney, at Walt Disney World in March 2014.

It is a Baldwin-built 3-foot narrow gauge steamer rescued with three other steamers from a railroad boneyard in Mexico when Disney World was being developed.

They all have an amazing story of their rescue and restoration rebuild by WDW.
