PRR E6s 460 ran on the Long Island!

Postby RGlueck » Mon Nov 07, 2016 9:08 am

The RMPA just completed an amazing restoration of Pennsy E6s "Atlantic" #460. It was dedicated yesterday (Sunday). This particular locomotive is famous for a 1927 speed run, but I want to raise to everyone's knowledge, she pulled commuters on the LIRR as well. #460, #198, and #1600, were the last of the class to operate on PRSL, and parts from all three exist on the 460 today. The locomotive will probably never steam again, which is very sad, but she's preserved and rebuilt with new steel. Essentially, she's ready for shopping. These "E's" ran short consists to Oyster Bay and occasionally to the Hamptons and Montauk. A matching G5s from the LIRR would be a nice touch, if you catch my drift.
