The loco works fine. I'm not sure how well the locomotive works...
Quite the unusual little lokey. Don't recall ever seeing anything similar.
Can one assume that it does not pull much?
Sweet! - Can you tell us more about this little steamer?
Excerpt from the book Pacific Slope Railroads:
"Los Angeles & San Pedro Railroad, incorporated in 1868, was the first rail line in Southern California. The road was completed from Los Angeles to Wilmington in 1869 and was acquired by the Southern Pacific in 1874. Engine No.1, a tiny 2-2-0 named San Gabriel, was built by the Vulcan Iron Works of San Francisco in 1868; she had 9 x 18 inch cylinders and 62 inch drivers. Records regarding her disposal are rather hazy, one source stating she blew up in 1869 at San Pedro and was not rebuilt, another record indicating she was scrapped in 1876."
