#29 Lima


The No 29 is a 0-6-0 switch engine built in Lima, OH in 1944. It is coal fired and weights 77 tons. She originally worked for the Bay Terminal Railroad in Toledo, OH and then for the Duluth and Northeastern in Minnesota before arriving at Prairie Village in 1976.

After 12 years and much needed work on the firebox and grates, #29 run was able to run during the 2013 Jamboree under its own power.

Here #4002 escorts #29 to provide compressed air for brakes.

Here #29 steams up the west side of the Village 7/6/14 before Railroad Days.
Work on #29’s own steam driven compressor was completed in the spring of 2014.
