If the 0-6-0 switcher and tender came from Goshen Va, then it probally came from the North-Fork and Western Railroad, INC. The owner, I believe his name is Will Harris, owns the North-Fork Lumber company at the same address. Afew years back, he announced that he wanted to build a railroad type theme park and started buying equipment.

Included in his collection are former WM. Ritter two-truck Shay sn949, that used to reside at The Old Shay Inn at McClure, Va. as well as a little 0-4-0 that once operated for the Nelson and Albamare Lumber Co., this locomotive was displayed in Marion, Va until it was purchased by Harris three years ago.

Not sure where the 0-6-0 actually came from.
