The new girl looks pretty old! Not often I get to see construction number 2.
Has anyone else made it out to Steam Into History in New Freedom, PA yet?
I bought a ticket, but never got around to taking the ride.

Have they been running the locomotive tender first at all? The cow catcher looks short compared to most 4-4-0 locomotives but I still wonder what concerns have been had with regards to the over hang when coupling to the front end of the locomotive.
