OIM-US Steel S-8 cow and calf

Postby mitch kennedy » Wed Jan 02, 2013 4:21 pm

Hi- I was scanning some slides recently, and came across a shot I took of an ex-OIM S-8 cow and calf ,sitting stored at Fairless Works back in 1982 or 83(US Steel near Morrisville PA, now closed)-did these ever get purchased for restoration or as museum displays, or just left to rust away?

Nice photo! I believe all were scrapped around 1983.
