Very significant in the opening up of America, 25000 of these 'American type' locomotives were made.  From wood-burning to coal-burning, many improvements were made to this narrow gauge loco.  The Jupiter, modeled here, had an interesting history and has been variously restored and re-created.  See also the Chattanooga Choo Choo and the famous General.
