Perhaps a tad bit out of place, but part of the history nonetheless.

Same engine

 
    In this pic 4039 sort of looks like a mini version of an N&W Y or A class loco because of the builders plate and the shape of the smokebox.  
 
 When these 0-6-0's operated on the Virginia Blue Ridge they had rectangular number plates.  ( like 4039 in Charlie's pic )

L.S. Young and Sons donated their coal loaders and advertising to the museum. The coal distributors were located on a siding off the north leg of the new wye in Denville on the Rockaway Loop. The yard and siding are gone, but the wye is still there and used frequently by NJT, NS and occasionally The Morristown & Erie. I use to play in the coal piles on my way home after school. Mom was never happy about that. I remember this gear when it was in daily use.

In regards to 4039, she's an Ex- Army switcher built by ALCo. and is a sister to NHIRR's 9. The only difference between the two is the headlight and bell position.

Not because of that.  I don't know how many years Southern #4501 has been on the list, but she was working for NS with that same designation.

Here are some of my photos of the Whippany Railway Museum on November 5th, 2006. Nothing really happening but it was great to see the little Army 0-6-0 all painted nice 'n fresh.
