Casey jr and Friends - Cecil the Diesel (USAX 7320)

Cecil the Diesel was built in January 1941 for the US Army by General Electric. He was used by a contractor to build the Ellwood Ordnance Plant in Ohio during WW 2. After the war, he was transferred to th e US Army Transportation Corp.

Built in an era when steam locomotives were still being produced in large quantities, "Cecil" was used to make up trains in railroad yards and switch cars in and out of loading tracks. He has only 300 horsepower and cannot pull very many cars.

In early 1956, Cecil was transferred to the US Navy and was moved to the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard at Bremerton. After many faithful years of service, he was retired in 1976 and moved to the Northwest Railway Museum.
