This is a small steam locomotive used in the Wanamie Pennsylvania colliery operations during 1969. This was made by the The Vulcan Iron Works of Wilkes Barre PA. These small mine locomotives were known as Dinkys or Loki's. The Vulcan Iron Works got its start in the late 1860s due to the growing demand for anthracite coal . The manufacturer did survive into the diesel era but the competition was too stiff to remain in business and it closed its doors in the mid-1950s. While Vulcan has been gone for many decades now, several of its locomotives survive today, some of which are still in operation.
