2-6-2 OR 2-6-4 STEAM LOCOMOTIVE AND TENDER
|Built from 1947-49 and again in 1952. This engine was styled after the Pennsylvania RR's K5-Class Pacific locomotive, of which only two real engines were ever built. The boiler was painted black and had wire handrails down the length of both sides as well as an ornamental bell. The number was rubber stamped in silver. The smokestack was separately applied. On older engines, it was left silver while on later models, it was painted black. A Keystone with the number 5690 was stamped on the front of the boiler. The 1947-49 versions were 2-6-2s. They had nickel-rimmed, Baldwin disc drivers and a deatailed, die-cast, two-wheel trailing truck. The 1952 version was made into a 2-6-4 with the cheaper-looking trailing truck used on Prairie-type locomotives like the 2037. They came with either a 2466WX or 6466WX whistle tender.
