United States Navy #7



Steam Engine #7 sits in a field at Bloedel Donovan Park. It was built by H K Porter Co. in November of 1918 for the United States Navy. After some online searching I found a picture of this steam engine abandoned in a Seattle yard in 1949.

www.steamlocomotive.info provides some great information on this steam engine.

  4. Trains play a big part in our economy still, even though most of us don't think of them very much.
