In 1868, the Central Pacific Railroad purchased four locomotives from Schenectady Locomotive Works. They were The Jupiter #60,  The Storm #61, The Whirlwind #62 and The Leviathan #63.  In 1999, David Kloke, owner of Kloke Construction and Kloke Locomotive Works, LLC., had a dream of replicating The Leviathan #63.  And so construction began.  After 10 years of work by several talented people David's dream became a reality.  The Leviathan #63 is

AMERICA'S NEWEST OPERATING STEAM LOCOMOTIVE!

ABOUT DAVID H. KLOKE

David H. Kloke, owner of Kloke Construction and Kloke Locomotive Works, LLC., has been in the construction business for 40 years. His business started in Wisconsin doing construction work and renting heavy equipment. He moved to Illinois twenty years ago and set up shop in Cook county where he resides today.

Of his many accomplishments through the years the Leviathan63 is his pride and joy. His "hobby" took him 10 years to create and it "WOW'S" everyone who sees and hears it. The Leviathan63 is truly a beautiful site!

With the help of many a non-profit organization has been created named Historic Railroad Equipment Assoc. Through donations he hopes to rebuild and replicate several historic railroad equipment for educational purposes. He can make this possible with donations from people like you.
