Built in May of 1920 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works, this 2-8-2 locomotive originally operated on the Kentucky & Tennessee Railway - a shortline constructed to serve the Stearns Coal and Lumber Company in Stearns, Kentucky. The K&T once boasted over 25 miles of track and 12 steam locomotives. TVRM purchased K&T 10 in 1965, renumbered it as 6910, and utilized it on an autumn excursion from Chattanooga to Cleveland, TN in October of that same year. However, due to its very poor operating condition, that one excursion was the first and only trip it would lead. With plans to cosmetically restore this engine, TVRM will soon make it a much more visible part of the collection in the Grand Junction Display Yard.
