Hello all,

Just saw on the NERails photo archive that the Childrens Hospital in Valhalia (SP?) Ny, has FL-9 2021 on their site, sitting on a panel track.

The paint looks fresh, did MN donate it or did the hospital / Friend of purchase it, is she complete or did they remove the hazards, etc... all the normal questions.

Take care,

Rich C.

2021 was stripped on inside and all openings welded shut to make the unit weatherproof. it was also painted in Imron paint at North White plains shop and then it was moved to the Hospital. the whole event took place at least two years ago. a lot of MNCR hours were donated by the NWP wreck crew and cooperation of MNCR managment.
