Roaring Camp &
Big Trees Railroad

This engine, named Dixiana, can be seen at the Roaring Camp and Big Trees RR in the Santa Cruz mountains. It pulls trains up and down 8% grades!
Here is a closeup view of Dixiana's coupler. Note that it is an automatic coupler mounted into a multi level link and pin coupler. Note also the mis-match in height between the two couplers! This actually goes away once the train moves... Don't try this in HO scale!
