Yep, that's the Geep that originally was at the museum in Wellsville, 
WV, until it folded a few years ago. It was picked up (rescued from 
scrapping) by the Ohio Central, and then traded to the Minerva Scenic 
Railway. Recently, it was sold to LTEX. Apparently the locomotive is in 
good condition, so it may end up being fixed up and sold or leased out.

The engine wears a "red P" paint scheme (which the original 7049 never 
wore) and it has Conrail style numbers under the cab, but otherwise it 
doesn't look too bad in its museum paint job.
