From my understanding Joey.

R.J. Corman's requested a Steam Locomotive to be built BRAND NEW in china. After it had been heavily tested on Jingpeng Pass (spelling sorry), once all-was-well, it was to be shipped to its new home in Kentucky. Instead of buying & restoring a locomotive in North America, they (R.J Cormans) thought it would be better to build one new and overseas.

Like I said, this is from what I have been told & also have read in Magazine/Websites.

Thanks
Luke
