This On3/On30 model is a replica of 3-foot gauge Davenport Locomotive Works Diesel-mechanical locomotive built for Sumpter Valley Railway in 1937 as their #101. Davenport manufactured many different types of Diesel-mechanical and steam locomotives. The #101 weighed 30 tons and was powered by a 200 horsepower Caterpillar D-1700 engine.
In 1963, Sumpter Valley Railway sold #101 to Denver & Rio Grande Western where it was re-numbered #50 and was then used to switch cars in the yard at Durango, Colorado. The #50 was then donated to the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado and is now on display at this museum.
The Davenport Locomotive Works locomotives were used by logging companies to switch cars at sawmills, by mining companies to haul ore cars between mines, stamp mills and smelters and in steel mills and other industries. The D&RGW #50 will be perfect for switching cars on a Rio Grande layout, as well as a non-D&RGW layout for logging, mining or industrial layout or to haul rocks.
