The #12 is not so much historical as it is practical albeit it served in World War II at the Puget Sound Navel Shipyard. The museum acquired her via military surplus and has been very economical around the yard taking passengers to the North Pole during Christmas time, taking the Lions Club to “Nowhere”, and moving cars around the yard.

Above the #12 is pulling a train to the North Pole during Toy Train Christmas so that kids can meet Santa Claus.
