For those whom are familiar with the name, SavaTheAggie or seen his work before, then you must not miss this! Let’s take a look at this piece of finest locomotive in town which is known as the Texas State Railroad Consolidation (2-8-0) Engine #300.
Quoted from the TSRR website, Engine 300 is one of two surviving United States Army “Pershing” engines. This type of engine was named after General “Blackjack” Pershing and built for service in Europe during World War One. Fortunately, this locomotive remained in the United States, primarily serving the Camp Polk Army Base in Leesville Louisiana. Head over to Eurobricks Train Tech to find out more.
