Detroit, Toledo & Ironton No. 16 is a 4-4-0 American type steam locomotive it was built by the Baldwin locomotive works in 1915 for the Midland Pennsylvania Railroad as #1 and named "T. E. Herrick".

In 1916, the Detroit, Toledo & Ironton Railroad leased the Toledo-Detroit and the locomotive became DTI #16.

The line had gone bankrupt in 1908 but remained solvent until it was bought by Henry Ford in 1920.

In 1930, #16 was retired and donated to the Edison Institute of Dearborn, MI, and later appeared on display in the Henry Ford Museum until 1983 when the Illinois Railway Museum traded BLE 2-8-0 No. 154 for No. 16.

As of Today the locomotive is part of the collection at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union, Illinois.


However, it was never delivered and was sold to the Toledo-Detroit Railroad.
