Cool story, for sure.

We've had other discussions on these here in the forum. In Big Ed's "Jersey" thread, maybe???

The show Deep Sea Detectives that used to be on the History Channel did an episode about these locomotives several years ago. They highlighted various researchers who've been trying to understand some of the unique and previously unknown design features of those locomotives.

Locomotives never really die, they wait and watch, until one day they get fired up again.
