From my own post on this subject in this forum over twelve years ago:

Quote:
The PRRT&HS members on their e-group confirm that this rumor arose from the wreck of two-month-old J1a 6423 on Sept. 20, 1943. The loco was, somewhat incredibly (according to those who saw photos, and describe the wreckage as a very sad sight indeed) rebuilt and restored to service.

These members have also tracked down several other rumors of buried PRR steamers over the decades, and come up with documentation that all alleged grave victims were salvaged for scrap or operation.

Well then, I see your point. I'm changing this forum to the altoona railroaders museum, and your opinions on it. In my opinion, I can see what they're trying to do, but they need to do less focus on making it kid friendly, and restore some of those passenger cars.
