A&S 12 - Kirkwood, MO
Alton and Southern 12 is seen here sitting in the back storage area at the National Museum of Transportation. The 0-8-0 steam locomotive has definitely seen better days since it was built in 1926. According to the website Steamlocomotive.com, the locomotive was built for just under $60,000 dollars and logged over 600,000 miles of service for the Alton and Southern Railroad.
