The attached photo and the text below comes from the Locomotive Firemen’s Magazine from 1910.

The model locomotive, illustration of which is here shown, was constructed by Bro. W. A. Bell, of Lodge 629, Deadwood, South Dakota, who states that the time required in building it was thirty days, working ten hours per day. It was modeled after a passenger locomotive in use on the Black Hills division of the C B. & Q. R. It. The material used in its construction was wood, and it was built to a scale of one inch to the foot, the principal tools being a jack-knife, saw and hammer. The total length of engine and tender is 5 feet; height from rail to top of smokestack, 17 inches; diameter of driving wheels, 51 inches.

Perhaps a new category for the Annual Meet Model Contest – wooden locomotives, hand tools only?
