One of the many behind the scenes "To Do" projects at The Hesston Steam Museum in northwestern Indiana, is the restoration of the 2 foot narrow guage railroad equipment , that operated at Chicago's Brookfield Zoo from 1967 until 1985.
This steam locomotive tender with the Milwaukee Road logo and color scheme, carried the coal and water to fuel the zoo's rebuilt and Americanized meter guage 0-8-0 steam locomotive from Germany.
