A survivor that's not on the list? No, it’s there, just not where I expected to find it.

June 6, 2014 (Romayor, TX)—A CLIMAX steam locomotive, believed to be the only survivor of its type in existence, is now on display at The Retreat at Artesian Lakes, a resort and conference center located one hour north of Houston. The engine was removed from an island where it had been semi-buried and partly shrouded by the lush greenery of East Texas for over 80 years. A seven-man team then hauled it 1,830 feet to its current location, using wooden “skis” and three large pieces of heavy machinery.
