25 Ton Narrow Gauge Switching Locomotive

Although a number of companies built locomotives as small as 2 1/2 tons, 20-25 ton units were the most popular size of small industrial switchers. Davenport, G.E., Plymouth, Porter, Vulcan, Whitcomb and others all produced units in this class ­ including some diminutive cow & calf combinations!
