Locomotive #2501, "Little Toot," is a General Electric 25-tonner built in 1942 for the U.S. Army. It is powered by a single 150-horsepower engine. It was purchased by Dick Samuels in 1992 for use on the SamTrak tourist train on the East Portland Branch. After SamTrak service ended, Samuels donated #2501 to the Oregon Electric Railway Historical Society in 2005 and it was moved to Antique Powerland in Brooks, Oregon where it is pictured here.
