The Agrium, Inc., facility in Henry, IL, reportedly closed in October 2001. The company had a Whitcomb 65-ton locomotive built in November 1943 as US Army 7974. It served in the UK and on the Continent during the war, and in October 1946 it was purchased by the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad as its No. 53. The W&OD sold it in October 1959. Does anyone know the current status of this locomotive? Was it scrapped on site, sold, etc.?
