Dennis the Menace Train, Jan. 26, 1956
"Old 1285" contributed by Southern Pacific and moved to its resting place by the Army, now stands still and safe for small fry to swarm over to their hearts content. The smoke stack has been covered over so tots won't fall in. The clapper has been removed from the bell after complaints about the noise from people a half mile away.
A excerpt from a Monterey Herald article on the train that was placed at Dennis the Menace Park on January 26-27, 1956.
