Re: PC: EP-5 Photo Links

If it's not here, it's not really saved, is it?
All knock-down drag-outs regarding semantics aside, it's terrible how the last one came to a bad end simply due to short-sightedness and no small amount of pomposity...

One was saved. The NHRHTA raised enough money to buy one from Conrail
before they were scrapped. Unfortunately no museum could be located
that would allow it on their property (not a steam engine thus not worth
saving). As a result of having nowhere to put it, the deal fell through
and the unit was recycled.
