Here is the Shelby Brown. We've ridden the tourist train a few times in Jackson MO.





WOW I would of loved to ride in the Loco or see it in action for myself....

FYI... The Loco does run I hooked up a DC transformer to a section of spare track I had. Engine Growl's to life wheels seem to be tight though I put a dab of lube on them loco ran a little better. Ran good on low speeds does not like higher speeds though... This Loco might turn into my Christmas time under the tree Loco (Yes I still do that).....

I suspect that the Shelby Brown started out as a saddle-tank loco.

ebtnut.  You are correct. It was built by Porter in 1946 as a tank locomotive.  Most 2-4=2s were tank locomotives.  I know the tender looks a little big for it.
