The fill sized operating replica , of the Central Pacific Railroad's 1868 Baldwin 4-4-0 steam locomotive "Leviathan."

Built by the Kloke Locomotive Works in Elgin Illinois.
Although the prototype of this 1860's era American steam
locomotive, that helped to construct America's historic first
transcontinental railroad was scrapped and lost to history, -
This full sized operating replica, gives one an idea of how
America's railroad locomotives from the 1860's were like .
