Inscription
This eight-ton, short-wheel base, wood burning locomotive, built by the H. K. Porter Co. of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, was delivered to the Merced Mining Company of Coulterville in 1897. All of "Billy's" active life was spent hauling gold-bearing quartz ore over the narrow-guage tracks from the Mary Harrison mine, south of town, to the Potosi stamp mill, west of town - a distance of about four miles. Abandoned in 1904, it was resurrected in the mid 1930's, and placed here for all to see and enjoy. Further information on "Billy" may be obtained inside the history center.
