Was pleased to discover this photo of the Calico & Odessa RR 0-4-0T No. 5 taken by Robert J. Galindo in 2005. Details accompanying the photo indicate that it is an actual steam locomotive, 30″ gauge, originally used in the silver mining operation in Calico, CA. It has been motorized, and its builder and construction number are not known. Anyone who has further details of this locomotive can email
