Several years ago a group was working on the restoration of Lee Tidewater Cypress  2-6-2 #4 on the Hardin Southern.  What became of this loco?

This is old information from the Kentucky Railfan Group on Yahoo. As of August 23, 2006 the locomotive was for sale.

The 2-6-2 #4 was recently purchased by the Wanamaker Kempton and Southern Railroad located in Kempton Pennsylvania. It will be restored to service for their tourist operations. The website for the WK&S is www.kemptontrain.com
