The former Erie & Pittsburgh/PRR station complex in Sharon, northwestern Pa., is in jeopardy. The passenger station, express office, and freight station are all part of the same restaurant complex (last Quaker Steak & Lube) and obscured greatly by additions. http://wkbn.com/2017/10/18/historic-sha ... o-save-it/

Anyone think they "need" such a display locomotive? Not to give Brother Rowlands another project, but Youngstown isn't that far away.......

There are two of them, and I've talked about them on here before.

Since we have the other one that we don't have resources to take care of, I don't know what having the other one would do for us. One possible use may be to take it to Youngstown Steel Heritage and put it on display and use the pressure vessel as a 3,000 gallon water storage tank for the J&L 58.

I will do some checking on the locomotive and see what I can come up with on it.

When it rains it pours...

Cleveland is only another 60 or 70 miles away also. This loco might make a nice display in front of the Midwest Railway B&O Roundhouse. At 42 tons the locomotive move could be done with a 50 ton capacity low boy trailer.
