Built by Baldwin Brothers in Jan/Feb 1880
for the Denver, South Park, & Pacific,
this is the oldest surviving steam locomotive
in the state of Colorado. It ran on the
DSP&P starting off numbered 51 then changed
to 191 staying there until the South Park became the Denver, Leadville, & Gunnison subsidiary of
the Union Pacific railroad when things were reorganized. Around 1900 the DLG and other
UP subsidiaries were being reorganized /
merged into the fledging Colorado & Southern narrow gauge lines where it became C&S #31, though that number was never painted on it.
It headed to Wisconsin logging roads where
it was the power for two different ones until
being retired in 1932 to a Logging Museum.
Cornelius Hauck discovered it there and organized a 3 way trade to get it back home to Colorado.
It has just come out of a cosmetic restoration.
This book is spiral bound so it lays flat
