The true story of a little steam locomotive who worked hard, was abandoned and forgotten, and then was found and restored to an exciting new life.

Found by a young man who restored him to running condition, he now travels to tourist railroads and railroad museums from Connecticut to Florida. A true story of hope and perseverence that will appeal to a wider audience than many train books. The simple text is profusely illustrated with photographs by the author as well as colorful drawings and diagrams. Also included is a specific fact sheet about the 0-4-0T Vulcan saddletank engine.
