The Waialua Agricultural Company Engine #6, completed in 1919, is a 0-6-2T Baldwin Locomotive Works type Class 8-16 2/3 D, oil burning, steam-powered locomotive built to operate on narrow gauge track. Waialua Agricultural Company Engine #6 is significant as an excellent example of the type of steam-powered locomotives used on Hawaiian plantations during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is also the only locomotive designed and built in Hawaii, and is the only fully operational and authentically restored Hawaiian sugar plantation locomotive in the world.
