New Train: 1911

Tighter information: new locomotive (a "train" is what it pulls). O&CRR No. 11, a 2-8-0 Consolidation type of engine, was indeed built from existing used and newly made parts in 1910. It was not retired until 1952; its boiler was removed to power a sawmill at Carlotta, CA but was deemed unsafe for use by a boiler inspector and eventually cut up for scrap.
