Frederick Snare No. 2 Vulcan Iron Works
(aka MW-101 and the "Squirt")

FS-2 (also known as MW-101 and the "Squirt") was originally purchased by the Frederick Snare Corporation, Grafton, West Virginia, in February, 1935. The paperwork (of which we have about 50 pages worth in our archives!) reads "Design similar to 'Wyoming' design." It was originally black with white lettering. Early in its life at the MCRR, it was painted in a "utility motor" yellow and black scheme. As part of the massive upgrade, described below, it was repainted in its original livery.

Beginning early 2016, the Vulcan gasoline switcher underwent a massive upgrade: replacement engine, trasmimssion, paint, air sanders, lighting, and a few other upgrades. See the "projects" page and the shop blog for various updates to this project.
