Remarks & Notes 
The Heisler locomotive was the last version of the three major types of geared steam locomotive (with Shay and Climax). This three-tuck 75 ton Heisler was built in 1918 for the Hetch Hetchy Railroad and it was used to transport construction material for a dam that would supply water via an aqueduct to San Francisco. In 1923, #2 was sold to Standard Lumber Company, which would one day become Pickering Lumber. She was donated to Travel Town in 1957.
