Local railroad museum receives locomotive donation

Terre Haute, IN--- a 71-year old railroad locomotive is coming to the Wabash
Valley Railroad Museum in Terre Haute thanks to a generous donation from
Harbor Rail Services Company of Pasadena CA.

Harbor Rail Services Company is donating a General Electric 45-ton side-rod
driven switch engine to the Haley Tower Historical & Technical Society's
Wabash Valley Railroad Museum.

The 1947 vintage locomotive was once owned by Public Service Indiana (Duke
Energy), where it was used to shuffle coal cars around a power generating
station. It was most recently used at a railcar repair facility owned by
Harbor Rail Services in Clinton IN.

The little "critter", it is only 29 feet long, will be placed on display at
the Wabash Valley Railroad Museum at 1316 Plum St in Terre Haute, where it
will join a growing collection of historic local railroad items.

MISCO Enterprises will handle moving the locomotive from Clinton to Terre
Haute.
