Camino, Placerville & Lake Tahoe Railroad No. 2 is a Shay - 3 truck built by the Lima Locomotive Works in 1922 as #4 for the Little River Redwood Company Railroad, a lumber concern based in Crannell, CA.

In 1935, the locomotive was sold to the Camino, Placerville & Lake Tahoe Railroad and renumbered #2.

It was primarily a lumber-hauling line, carrying milled timber from the company's planing mill in Camino in the Sierra Nevada Mountains east of Sacramento to a connection with the Placerville Branch of the Southern Pacific at Placerville, CA.

It is now at the Travel Town Museum were it is put on static display.


The CP&LT operated an eight mile line owned by the Michigan-California Lumber Company.

After a working life of thirty-three years, the last twenty-two with Michigan-California Lumber, #2 was donated to the museum in 1955.
