RC&G Motive Power Roster
Number 2 represents a generic Porter 0-4-0. Its primary purpose in life is to be the narrow gauge switcher stationed to service the dual gauge interchange at Union. Due to the lack of creature comforts at Union it is paired with a crew car that started life as a caboose on the line. To learn more about # 2 click on the photo above.
7 is intended to represent a generic Baldwin 2-8-0 from the early
1900's. It's primary assignment on line is as the main power for all
local freight trains. It will eventually be joined by a nearly identical
sister engine. To read more about # 7 click on the photo above.
Number 10 is a Baldwin light industrial locomotive. It is too light in weight and tractive effort to be used as a road locomotive so it is most generally found pulling maintenance of way trains. Click on the photo above to learn more about # 10.
Number 12 is modeled after a Baldwin 4-6-0 that operated on the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad. It's assignment on the line will be to be the head end power for all RC&G passenger trains. Until the passenger fleet is fully operational it will occasionally be found pulling a local freight.

Number 13-1 & 13-2
Numbers 13-1 and 13-2 are a pair of General Electric diesel electric locomotive that are technically not within the timeline that I try to adhere to on the line but they could have been. The pair are mu'ed and always run together. Thought small they are very powerful for their size and can be found performing a wide variety of chores on the line.

The M-3 is the RC&G's answer to economical passenger service when a full passenger train is not warranted. Patterned after a standard gauge prototype that operated on the D&RG for a couple years. Click on the photo above to learn more about the history and building of the M-3.
