The Vulcan Iron Works, of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, was hired to build this oil burning 0-4-0 tank engine for New York Shipbuilding Corporation, in Camden, New Jersey. When completed in 1941, the locomotive, with builders plate #4309 was delivered to the New York Shipbuilding yard with Navy designation U.S.N.X. 2025 as seen in its builders' photographs.
In 1948, the engine was sold to the Carbon Limestone Company and renumbered to 17 , where it probably served in and around the quarry.
First of all besides the 17 not having a tender, Disneyland's Fred Gurley and Ward Kimball also don't have tenders as well....On a side note, I had no clue the 17 was at the Carbon Limestone. Probably served along side the Cedar Point and Lake Erie's George R as well as the Lahiana Kaanapali and Pacific's Anaka and Myrtle all 3 of them 1943 HK Porter's that were originally 0-4-0Ts now 0-4-0 and 2-4-0s.
