LOCOMOTIVE NO. 89
OUR NO. 89 LOCOMOTIVE
Locomotive No. 89 ran on the Canadian National Railway for most of her life before being sold to the Green Mountain Railroad in New Hampshire. After just a few years on the Green Mountain RR, the locomotive was sold to the Strasburg Rail Road in late Spring 1972. The harrowing experience battling Hurricane Agnes’ flood waters during her journey to Strasburg is chronicled in “Images of Rail: Strasburg Rail Road.” Today, No. 89 is still an active locomotive at Strasburg and is often the locomotive of choice to pull smaller train consists.
