Sugar Cane Train No. 3 'Myrtle'

Sugar Cane Train No. 3 'Myrtle' (StreetView)
No. 3 Myrtle: produced as a sister engine to No. 1, the No. 3 is also a three-foot narrow gauge 2-4-0 steam locomotive produced by H.K. Porter, Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in February 1943 for the Carbon Limestone Company. The LKPRR similarly altered the appearance of this engine, but gave it a slightly more modern appearance, representative of a typical oil-burning engine from the early 20th Century. As such, it has a steel cab, whaleback tender, small headlight modeled on an electric prototype, and darker color scheme. The No. 3's design, name and number were inspired by a historic sugar cane engine built in 1900 for the Hawaii Railroad and retired in 1945.
