This is a detailed account of C&S narrow gauge 2-6-0 No. 9 and its use on the Georgetown Loop tourist railroad in Colorado during 2006. A historic veteran of Colorado narrow gauge lines, No. 9's return to operation marked the first time that a locomotive originally used on "the Loop" saw service on the reconstructed portion. As it happened, author and railroad equipment authority Jason Midyette was in the right place at the right time to both observe and play a role in the entire story of No. 9's return. But the engine's time in the spotlight was short-lived, lasting only about 60 days before its fire was dropped. No. 9 is now on static exhibit at Breckenridge, Colo. This book is the full story of No. 9's restoration and the series of unfortunate, costly and unusual circumstances behind its one short season of operation.
