This miniature locomotive played an integral part in the history of Caribou County. When the dam at Alexander Reservoir was built in 1924, it hauled supplies to the dam. Trapped by rising water, the locomotive was abandoned. In 1976 the reservoir was drained for repairs, and the locomotive was uncovered. It was then lifted from its resting place, restored by Union Pacific Railroad, and presented to the city of Soda Springs.
