Jackass & Western Railroad Locomotive 31827
Boulder City, NV - Nevada State Railroad Museum Boulder City - The Nevada Railway Museum at Boulder City has a diesel locomotive with an interesting history. It was built by General Electric in March 1953, number 31827. It's described as a 'B-B-160/160'. The customer was the United States Navy and it carries 'Navy Plates' - 'LOCOMOTIVE DE 80 TON 56-1/2 IN GA 0-4-4-0 CLASS'. The locomotive was eventually transferred to the Atomic Weapons Testing Site in Nevada, which had its own internal railway. The lighthearted title of 'The Jackass and Western Railroad' stuck and the name appears in black on each side of the yellow-liveried locomotive.
