Casey Jones Steam Engines
Gilbert made five of these unique little engines, plus three variations, during the 1960s.

Unless otherwise specified, the large pictures on this page are of engines in the collection of The Upstairs Train.

#L2002 Erie.
Greenberg lists this variation, but the TM Guide doesn't and Doyle says it may not be a factory original.
McElroy lists the Erie, but neither Burlington.

Here's a great close-up of the engine.

And of the tender.  It sure looks like the tender on my 21165, but that doesn't mean it didn't come that way.
