However, it was never delivered and was sold to the Toledo-Detroit Railroad.
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.
- No. 16 is one of only 2 surviving DT&I steam locomotive.
- The only other Detroit, Toledo & Ironton steam locomotive that still survives today is #45, on display at the Henry Ford Museum.
