    Its a part of Honesdale heritage guys. Nothing more. It has nothing to do with modern transportation. I live in Honesdale and the Stourbridge line is a big part with the train rides. Now the steam locomotive will be pat of it.

    Just don’t drive this locomotive through Mahanoy City. The children of the town will surely be up da tracks to bombard it with rocks.
