This is a picture of WMSTR Porter #3 locomotive.

This locomotive was donated to the show by Don Ames. Don purchased two engines from the Trap Rock Quarry in Dresser, WI. One engine #3 was donated to Bonnanzaville and one engine #5 was donated to us.

Steve Gerrich, Lynette Gerrich and Alfred Deutscher took interest in the project once Bonnanzaville transferred ownership of the #3 to us. They basically started with two axles on the tracks and worked from there. After countless hours of labor from the lead crew and many others it now runs the rails at WMSTR.

Hey Vern,
You're in charge of locomotives While I remember parts of this engine being extremly hot once, I thought I'd see this engine posted in the stationary steam section
