The steam team at the St. Louis Iron Mountain and Southern Railroad located in Jackson, MO USA, is in the process of restoring our steam locomotive. #5 is a 2-4-2 Columbia built by H.K. Porter in 1946. It was built as a tank engine for the Central Illinois Public Service Company and was donated to the Mid Continent Railroad Museum in 1963. In 1971 it was sold to the Crab Orchard and Egyptian tourist railroad at Marion, IL where they converted it to have a tender from a former Illinois Central water car. In 1985 it was sold to Semo Steam in Jackson, MO. It was in service for the St. Louis Iron Mountain & Southern Railway until 1997.
