 Post subject: How to locate an old steam engine
PostPosted: Wed May 13, 1998 2:01 am 

I am with the Camp Atterbury (Indiana) Museum, located on a 40,000 acre former WW 2 Army camp. Hundreds of thousands of troops arrived and departed on the Penn. RR lines that were laid to the camp. We are obtaining some railroad cars to display as WW2 troop trains. We would like to find the whereabouts of the old steam engine used at the Camp. It was retired by Penn. RR, and then brought back into service for the war. Number 2490. You can find a grainy picture of it on the web site. The museum opens this June. The famous 106th Infantry Div. of the Battle of the Bulge fame, trained here. Any help will be appreciated. Also does anyone have any info on the private car of the President of Penn. RR., Wallace(?) Atterbury? The Camp was named after General Atterbury.<p>Thanks<br>
