Locomotive #471

Locomotive #471 was bought by the Klein brickyards in 1943 and perhaps, used for switching or for heating water near the kilns. When retired, #471 was parked behind Cuzzy's and forgotten for a number of years.


A few Chaska boys  were delighted to make it their giant play space - they climbed aboard and on top, imagining themselves the locomotive engineers, outrunning outlaws.
