Visitors to the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania sometimes ask museum personnel about specific pieces of rolling stock and are disappointed to hear they are no longer at the museum. This is inevitable in a museum that changes over the years. Here are some of the locomotives no longer at the museum in Strasburg, Pennsylvania.
Alco RS-1 modified for the US Department of War in the Second World War showing the unique C-C trucks and cab narrowing for European running. It never went to Europe, instead it went to Iran and hauled supplies to the border with the USSR. It is painted here in the colors of Alaska Railroad #1034. This locomotive now resides at the US Army Transportation Museum, Fort Eustis in Newport News, Virginia.
Brooklyn Eastern District Terminal Railroad #13 H. K. Porter 0-6-0 T built 1919 in Pittsburgh. It is "hiding" somewhere. Brother engine BEDT #15 became coal-fired "Thomas The Tank Engine" at the hands of the Strasburg Rail Road.
