Off the rails a bit....

....Well not really I guess. Anyone know the history of the little 0-4-0 tank engine that sits outside the AC Harley dealer on the White Horse Pike in Galloway?

There used to be an 0-4-0 that sat next to Rt 206 not too far from Mt. Holly. It was privately owned by a guy that was quite excentric. He had a display with a bunch of hand painted signs, artifacts and the engine covered with political statements. I had heard that the engine was originally owned by a contracting company. Don't know if this is the same engine you are talking about.

It is the same one. The guy's name was something like Mihalchik. What a garage sale that place had when he passed on to that great round house in the sky.
