This locomotive was built by Baldwin and used until the 1940s for sugar cane transport on Hawaii. Then, it came to the Grizzly Flats Railroad, Ward Kimball’s backyard railroad in San Gabriel, California. The locomotive was in use there until 2006. Afterwards, Chloe and its passenger cars were on display at the Orange Empire Railway Museum near San Bernardino, California. LGB/Märklin is a proud sponsor of the Chloe Restoration Project conducted by the Southern California Railway Museum. If you would like to be part of this historic restoration or for more information, visit oerm.org (C59 fund) or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 30431 passenger car, 1st class, and the 32441 passenger car set are available to go with this locomotive.
