Great Smoky Mtn RR Small green "steam" loco?

Postby MattW » Sat Jan 13, 2018 9:12 pm

I haven't been to the GSMRR in quite a while, but while poking around in Google Maps one day, I found this interesting little critter: https://goo.gl/maps/DVuvtxa9Eyq It looks like it has proper couplers and air hoses but it looks way too small and "fanciful" to be a real locomotive. Does anyone know just what this thing is?

That used to be "The Little Engine That Could" that toured the country for a couple years in the mid-2000's. I don't know the story of how it ended up at GSMR though.
