this guy saved 4 lokies from the scrap from the lehigh coal and navigation company. the cool thing is 3 of them appear to be saddle tank lokies that have the tanks removed but one of them is a regular steamer and has a small tender car like a mine car. mike piersa sent these to me last night, check this out!

yes! thats it, forgot the name of the town. yes there is a vulcan. its the smaller one that is rather flat looking. appears to be the same type of lokie they used at wanamie. at first i thought it may have been one of those.

All I can say to this is WOW! A nice bunch of engines and even some stationary boilers. Looks like a steam storage tank in there too if I am not mistaken, and maybe fan? Looks pretty cool.

The collection is very impressive. The owner’s father used the red steam engine to generate electricity for their property. The fan appears to be a Baker Fan, which was used to put a load on steam tractors. One is used at Rough and Tumble during their August show. Here is a link to such a fan in action:
