    Description

    Jennie K Locomotive (1940). From the Cedar Point Archives comes this rare H. K. Porter locomotive that was built in Pittsburgh in 1940 (C/N 7084). It is a 36-gauge machine, a 2-4-0 originally built as a 04-OT. It weighs 21 tons. The first owner was Acme Brick Company in Malvern, Arkansas, who used the locomotive to -- what else? -- haul bricks. It was sold in 1957 to Paul Eakins in Sikeston, Missouri and again in 1959 to a stone machinery company in Daisy, Tennessee. It was then resold at an unknown date to CP & LE Railroad. It was renamed after the wife (Jennie) and granddaughter (Kathy) by Jack Foster, the first Superintendent of CP and LE. It was eventually purchased by Cedar Point Theme Parks and renamed Cedar Point and Lake Erie Railroad #2, and is currently on the Knott's grounds. Approximate dimensions are 23' long by 104" high x 81" wide. The boiler needs some work, and it is being sold "as is" with no implied warranty or working condition. Third party shipping is required by the buyer. Fair to Good overall condition.
