The Cabin Creek Lumber Co. Climax was was originally built
as a Class "A" model for an unknown owner. As shown, it has been converted from steam to use an internal combustion engine. At the time of the photographs, the locomotive
was still in regular service and "on its second" internal combustion
engine. The photos were taken in the winter of 1963 next to
the company's office in Easton, Washington.
In the side view photo (left), you can see the large gears,
universal joints, and drive shafts still in tact below the center of the frame.

The owners rebuilt her in the mid 1970s with all new wood but using the original metal parts. They added a fake boiler and numbered her "HOOT 1". She still has her 2 speed transmission and sits in front of the old company store building.
