Behind the engine shed of the California Western RR (Skunk line) in Fort Bragg, CA is a rusted hulk of a steam engine and a tender. The engine carries a smoke box boiler plate of #22 and appears to be an 0-6-0. The tender appears to be a Vanderbilt with its oil/coal bunker missing. If anyone knows the origin and history of this engine, I would be interested.

How did you determine that from the number 22? If your indeed familiar with that engine, where has it been stored and when did Robert Pinole acquire it for the Cal. Western?
