The Accucraft Plantation 0-4-2 is an updated version of the Ruby design! This generic plantation engine has features that were common on all late 19th century Plantation locos. They were exported all over the world, and used mainly on Sugar Plantations in the south and also in Hawaii. Most of the American locomotive manufacturers built Plantation locos in 3 foot gauge, and ours follows Baldwin’s basic designs. The name IUKI in Hawaiian stands for Judy and it joins Accucraft’s other small generic locomotive names Ruby – Ida – Mimi. You can read Stuart Moon’s “Garden Rail” review Plantation Loco.
