Museum Locomotive #52

In late 1996, the Museum bought a Plymouth diesel locomotive. The engine was built in 1961 for Carpenter Technologies, in Pennsylvania, for their yard. This engine, number 52, at the time gave the Museum the pulling power it needed for a fully loaded train. The engine has, since purchase, been fitted with knuckle couplers, running boards, and had a snow plow built for it for the winter months.

Below is montage of images of the locomotive during its years on the WW&F.
