Just FYI,

The Glover Machine Works 2-6-0 just left Groveport, Ohio (approx 12:30 7/31) and is now on its way towards Florida.

The engine will be stopping tomorrow 8/1 at the Civil War and Locomotive Museum in Kennesaw, GA for public display and will then continue on to Florida.

Glad to learn of this event. Thank you for posting here.

I never saw a Glover, but learned a few years ago that one actually worked in the SFO
Bay Area at Howard Terminal. A builders plate survives today.

Tom - tried replying to your kind PM today but your email address is apparently inoperative.

First, let me apologize to the author of this thread for wandering some. But it does apply to the Glover locomotive.

Dave, when I sent you an email yesterday, my reply was checked for saving a copy for myself. That did not happen, so I chalk that up to my lack of proficiency with computers.

I can add that I have personally seen the Glover plate in question, c/n 14221. I also was able to locate a roster of Howard Terminal in Oakland, CA in a book by former WP/UP engineer Norman Holmes. It does show their number 7 being a Glover. They acquired it in 1940 and it was scrapped around 1954. Small locomotive with 14" by 22" cylinders.
