Remarks & Notes 
In the 1950s, the owners of Clark's Trading Post built a short rail line on their property in North Woodstock, NH and began rescuing steam locomotives from the scrap heap. Over the years, their White Mountain Central Railroad has accumulated 5 lucky engines, one of which is this 2-4-2T saddle tanker. Built by the Burham Williams Company (later part of Baldwin) in 1906, this locomotive served the East Branch & Lincoln in New Hampshire's White Mountains as a logging engine for roughly 60 years before becoming a static display at the Loon Mountain Ski Area. In 1999, the folks at Clark's acquired this engine and restored it to operating condition. It now runs on special occasions, such as the WMCRR's annual "Railroad Days" event. She is seen here switching onto the shop track after a long day pushing demonstration log trains and giving cab rides to lucky railfans. Steam enthusiasts will note the bright white exhaust plume. This locomotive, like all of the others at WMCRR, is fired with cord wood.
