Southern Pacific #2852 is a class "C" consolidation (2-8-0) built by Southern Pacific in their Sacramento Shops. The 2-8-0 was the most veristile locomotive on the Southern Pacific roster. It served for many years around California until the advent of diesel locmotives in the late 1940's. It served out the last few years of its life near Newark, California until being retired in 1958, the year Southern Pacific took all steam locomotives off their roster. She was then donated to the community of Orland, CA in 1959 and has remained at the farigrounds ever since. For a period of time she was painted all black. However in 2007, a crew of ON&P volunteers spent some time in August of that year repainting the locomotive back to her original Southern Pacific paint scheme. Needless to say now she looks as good as she did the day she rolled out of the Sacramento Shops.
