Yep, pretty neat.  Doesn't really look to be in THAT deteriorated condition, either.

WOW certainly appears to be a worthy candidate for preservation and at least superficial restoration.  Thanks for posting.

MIKE, I have been looking for a similar electric locomotive. There were 3 at Locust Summit, PA Coalmine back in 1960's. The bell was located on the hood center front end. They must have been similar as all owned by the Phila and Rdg coal  Iron Co. I plan on building one of these in 1/8th scale for 7&1/4 inch gauge track. My main reason to build this is the 0-6-0 drivers and not seperate trucks. Do you have any other photos or especially measurements? You can email bgsberk@comcast.net or call me @ 610-666-6572 I am retired and home most of the time. Now that leaves are gone I may want to go and measure it myself. I've been looking on this computer for photos for a while. Thanks, Bruce Saylor, near Valley Forge, PA.

Mike,
 
I was up to Mt Carmel on Monday 11/12/2012. I talked to a guy at the building that bags coal. He said to cross the road and go all the way down and IF it is still there it will be on the right. Well, a friend and I walked all over that area and couldn't find it. I went back to the guy and he asked if we found it. I said NO. He said they probably scrapped it. There is a company that dug a new strip mine along that dirt road next to the railroad and the ravine.  
There were concrete barriers at the end of the dirt road and only a trail next to the railroad. I was disappointed in not finding it.  
 
Is that the area where you found and photographed it.  
 
There were 3 of those electrics owned by the Philadelphia & Reading Coal & Iron co. There is a photo of the 3 along with the CNJ 113, 0-6-0 that was there when the mine quit in 1960. The photo is in the latest issue of Rail Classics Winter 2012. I'm curious if all 3 have now been scrapped. I was there in 1963 and never took any photos. The friend then with me took photos but he is long dead and I have no idea where his negs went, probably in the trash.
 
I sure would like to find drawings so I can build one in 1.5 or 1.6 inch scale.
 
Thanks,
 
Bruce Saylor in SE PA.

Bruce,
Sorry, not my photo. I have never been there and if the locomotive is gone I have less of a reason now. Bummer. Thanks for checking on it though.

Well I have been busy all last week searching different sites and contacting a bunch of people. I found out that not long after the photos taken by Mike Thomas that the P&RC&I electric locomotive at Locust Summit was cut up for scrap in 2009-10.  
 
I managed to contact someone that provided me with some important information. No photos or drawings. Hopefully I can work these out to build a presentable model in the next year or so.
 
Thanks to those that responded to me.

Bruce,
 
Sorry for the delay in my reply, I haven't logged on in a few months.
 
I drove into Locust Summit Yard on Christmas Eve 2011 and the locomotive was moved but still intact and then when I drove by in October it was gone.  It had to be scrapped sometime in 2012.  
 
Here was where it was located when I photographed it in 2009. You can see the roof of it in the satellite image :

Again, I apologize for the delay.

Me,
 
I found it. It was moved to Frackville. A friend contacted me and said he heard it got moved to Frackville. So I checked with another guy and he told me where it might be. I called and sure enough it was there. I went up several weeks ago in 27 degrees and took 104 photos and mearured it. I started to gather items to build it in 1.6 inch scale. Photo of it with my truck.
Thanks, Bruce

That is great news. Do you know if there is a plan afoot to do anything with it? Sure would make a great display piece.

Fantastic news and I'm glad it wasn't scrapped!  I live 3 miles from Frackville so I'll head up in the morning to take some photos.

Thanks Bruce.  When you said it was moved to Frackville, that's where I figured they put it.
 
Did you notice the steam lokie that was recovered from a culm bank?

You mean this one? Not very restoreable.

That one does seem to be missing a few necessary parts - not to mention the overall condition...
