Built in 1917 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works, No. 12 was one of thirteen narrow gauge steam locomotives operated by the Eastern Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad. Dubbed "The Tweetsie" by the locals who heard the shrilling tweet of the locomotive's whistle, the railroad hauled passengers, iron ore, and lumber between Johnson City, Tennessee and Boone, North Carolina. The ET&WNC continued operations until after World War II when business declined. Soon after the narrow gauge route was left abandoned and the scrapping of the narrow gauge locomotives commenced. Fortunately, No. 12 was saved by a group of rail enthusiasts. Later, Actor Gene Autry purchased the locomotive to be used for movies in Hollywood. However, the locomotive was put up for sale again after being determined that transportation and restoration would be too expensive. Fortunately, the locomotive was purchased by Entrepreneur, Grover Robbins Jr. Thus, No. 12 was moved to the Blue Ridge Mountains in Blowing Rock, North Carolina where the locomotive was restored to run on the fledgling tourist attraction, the Tweetsie Railroad. Today, No. 12 is one of two steam locomotives operating on the Tweetsie Railroad, carrying tourists around the park annually since July 4, 1957.
