Remarks & Notes 
Gasoline Loco #2

Gas-Mechanical locomotive #2 was made at the Vulcan Iron Works of Wilkes-Barre, PA. It was probably originally powered with a Ford “Model T” automobile motor and hood assembly. It has been repowered with a 1950-60’s era Chevrolet 283 cu in engine linked to a two speed Powerglide transmission. Rear axle is gear driven and front axle through side rods. Clark’s purchased it in 1964 from the Granite Quarry in Barry Vermont. [Ref]

This miniature locomotive is too small for passenger or revenue service, but is occasionally used for maintenance work.
