Engine #52 is the most recent addition to our stable. #52 was built by the Vulcan Iron Works in Wilkes-Berry Pennsylvania in 1953. It is a 65ton center cab diesel electric locomotive. #52 was built for Pennsylvania Power and Light in 1953 as their number 3347. Last in service at PP&L at their Martins Creek, PA location, the locomotive became surplus to them after that plant was converted from coal to natural gas. #52 is somewhat rare as locomotives go, since the Vulcan Iron works only constructed 54 diesel locomotives over 25tons. #52 was purchased by the WGHSEA in December of 2010. #52 is used as a backup for #643, and also will operate as primary passenger power on certain dates. #52 is available to be run by the general public as part of our Run a Locomotive program.
