 Post subject: Steam Locomotives in Colombus, NJ
PostPosted: Mon Apr 19, 1999 10:38 am 

Up until about 10 years ago there was a guy in Colombus that had a large junkyard (really a junkyard, not a museum) with all kinds of military stuff and a couple of steam locomotives. I think he died and the stuff was all sold off as the property is cleared and everything is gone. Does anyone know what happened to the steamers?<p>Happy Holidays,<p>Tom Gears<br>

Save reaching for your Conrad directories, folks: He's referring to US Navy #3, a 1918 Cooke 0-4-0T sold to Mahalcick Salvage in Columbus. Conrad has it listed as being on display in scrapyard along US 206 south of town.<p>I've never seen it. Any updates? The Conrad is 11 years old by now.....<br>

I was up there looking for them and a local told me the owner died and everything is gone. They scrapyard has been cleared and nothing is left. The local told me they went to a museum but did not know which one.<p>Tom Gears<br>
