WP TP29 Ten Wheeler
Out-shopped by Brooks on September 28, 1909, #94 was the 23rd 4-6-0 TP-29 delivered to the Western Pacific at the cost of a mere $14,585 ($368,857.26 today!) The majority of the TP-29s lasted until the mid 1930’s when the railroad began dieselizing. They were the railroad’s main passenger motive power, mostly due to ridership not being large enough to warrant larger locomotives. #94 survived beyond 1950 and became the WP’s Ambassador and was the select motive power for the WP’s private excursions and special trips. Her last run for the WP came on August 22, 1960. #94 was acquired by the Western Railway Museum in April of 1978 and was soon under steam once again! After 6 years of excursion service, #94 was once again placed on display.
Today: Only (1) of the original (36) TP-29s built survive:
#94 is on display at the Western Railway Museum in Suisun City, CA
WP TP29 Ten Wheeler set includes: (2) Engines and (2) Tenders
