About Atlantic Coast Line K-14 Ten-Wheeler #250 by Nicholas Howell

ACL 250 was built in 1910 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works as one of ten K-14 class ten-wheelers. It served until the early 1950s, and was the last ACL steam locomotive in service, running between Wilmington and Fayetteville, North Carolina. It was displayed in Tampa, Florida, outside the Seaboard Coast Line's headquarters until 1983 when it was donated to the Wilmington Railroad Museum in North Carolina where it resides today.

My model was built between June and September, 2023, and is powered by a single PF L motor geared 1:1 to Big Ben Bricks XL drivers. It has a working headlight and firebox and sliding cab windows. It uses Trained Bricks rods, one BrickArms U-clip, and Brick Model Railroader knuckle couplers and ball bearings.
