Steam loco on (barely) the Depew, Lancaster and Western
Posted by MilwaukeeMark on Sunday, November 7, 2021 5:44 PM

I always read trains magazine with my Google Earth on the iPad right next to the magazine, allowing me to go in depth with the Maps about the articles. In the December Issue, the wonderful article about Alcos on the Genesee Valley Gave me a lot to look at. Following the Depew Lancaster and Western, I noted a steam engine parked on a abandoned siding just behind the scale house. It's not a small engine, has a tender, looks to be in good shape, But the track doesn't appear to be connected. I found nothing in the article about a steam engine on the property. Can anybody identify it?

It appears to be CP #5361, a 2-8-2 built by CLC.

A good reference source for preserved steam locomotives is-
