Remarks & Notes 
Mudhen! Of all the D&RGW K-series locomotives, the 62-ton K-27, nicknamed "Mudhen" gets my personal vote as the most photogenic. Built in 1903, these little Baldwin beauties had a distinctive, late 1800's style cab and very uncluttered lines. Alas, in 2010, they are the rarest of the K-series with just two examples remaining in existence....the last two built. This gorgeous example is #464, which today serves as the primary power on the Huckleberry Railroad, a tourist operation in Flint, Michigan. Clearly well-cared-for, she regularly pulls excursion trains out of Crossroads Village and along the north shores of Mott Lake. She is seen here at the end of a service day, making her way from the village station back to the line's engine house, where she shares quarters with Alaska Railroad 4-6-0 #152.
