These two narrow gauge steam locomotives are near and dear to many childeren of all ages.

#12, or Tweetsie (the frowny faced locomotive), is a coal burning locomotive built in 1917 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works, to run for East Tennesse & Western North Carolina Railroad(ET&WNC) - but the locals said Eat Taters And Wear No Clothes. She was called Tweetsie because her high pitched whistle echoed through the mountains.

#190, or Yukon Queen (the smiling locomotive), is a coal burning locomotive built in 1943 by the Baldwin Lokomotive Works, to work for the U.S. Army Transportation Corps White Pass & Yukon Railroad in Alaska.

Both engines now reside in Tweetsie Railroad, NC and hoast train rides during open season. Being based off of engines #12 (right) and #190 (left) - from Tweetsie Railroad, NC - they are full of detail and even motorized!
