Sierra No. 3, a 4-6-0 locomotive built in 1891 by Rogers Locomotive and Machine Works. A three year rehab, resulting in a new boiler, brought the locomotive back to running in 2010. This locomotive has starred in movies such as High Noon, Back to the Future III, and Unforgiven. I will always remember it from the tv show Petticoat Junction as the Hooterville Cannonball.
