Pennsylvania 1223





Hey Everyone,

This was probably one of my favorite steam locomotives that is on display at the museum. This is the PA 1223. The locomotive was built in 1905 and was retired from active service in 1950. After retirement, The 1223 was leased to the Strasburg railroad from 1965 to 1989. This locomotive was also in the movie "Hello Dolly"

You can read more about the history by clicking on the top photo.

Hope your having a good week!

Nice set of photos Woody, one good thing about Christmas is I get to set the some trains up in the living room and play with them.

Awesome. I'm looking at your posts in reverse. This is amazing. I can't believe they actually got all of that in a museum. Cool!
