Hi Brian
Ark Lime was a very interesting operation in it narrow gauge days. It started out with gas mechanical critters went to steam even had a 10 shay at one point then ran both steam & critters finally dumped the steam and went back to gas & diesel critters only. They had GE's, Plymouths, Whitcombs a bit of everything in there history. The only remaining steam engine is on display in River Park in Batesville, Ar. about 10 plus miles from Limedale where Ark Lime is located. The Porter 0-4-0t had an interesting display history. It was first put on display in Batesville in 1961. At one point the city was afraid some kid would get hurt so they cover it like this.



The good news is it was restored again and redisplayed in the park.



I saw it first in 2004 and restored in 2008
It looked better restored
