The unit is at the Steel Style Inc in Newburg NY, 401 S waterstreet 12553, the owner wants big bucks, we looked at the unit to see if we could get it for Danbury railway museum.
It has been on blocks inside the shipyard for over 20 years and was not running when being stored. it was abandoned outside the shipyard property for years and being trashed by local juveniles when they saved it and parked it inside the building.
History is Whitcomb 25 ton serial no 61189 built jan 1952.
