Blowing Off Steam

It is the engine that put the steam back in Steamtown.

Restoration work on an old Baldwin was recently completed, and the engine was dedicated last month.  They did a great job, and it's a joy to watch.
Steamtown's web site says it was built in 1929.  It arrived in Scranton in 1990.  Google the restoration work.  It's a fascinating story.  It took a lot to get this thing up and running again.

I love the olive green paint, which the experts say was the original color when it rolled out of the factory in Delaware County, PA.
