Another of our society's regular performers, this is a replica of a Great Western Prairie tank, built by Terry Hobbs, our Vice Chairman, and being driven by his son Andrew. The yellow tank on the drivers trolley holds a large source of water for the locos injectors, as it's a cold feed and the small side tanks capacities limit its distance. This loco is powerful due to its small wheels, and can produce a fair turn of speed with light loads.
