Long Description:
The Grand Trunk Western No. 5030 is a Class J-3-b 4-6-2 "Pacific" type steam locomotive built the Montreal Locomotive Works in 1912 for the Grand Trunk Western railroad.

The engine was donated to the City of Jackson, MI in 1957, when it was retired from service and it is now currently on display in North Lawn Park just off Lansing Ave.

This is one of Thirty-nine of these relatively small but handsome Class J-3-a Pacifics were delivered to the Grand Trunk Western Railroad over a two-year period, #100-#118 from the Baldwin Locomotive Works and #5030-#5050 from the Montreal Locomotive Works in 1912. At least twenty-three, including #5030, were later equipped with new boilers with substantial changes, including a 24% reduction in the small tube count from one hundred and eighty-one to one hundred and thirty-nine. -Locomotive Wiki
