NYC Mohawk 2933 Unveiling

The Museum of Transportation  in St. Louis, MO, unveiled and dedicated two restored steam engines over the weekend. Both restorations have been in progress for several years and now both are ready for public display.  Wabash 573 and New York Central Mohawk 2933.

NYC L-2d Class 4-8-2 #2933 will be on outdoor unobstructed display, along with
Wabash 2-6-0 #573, for the next month, great for viewing and photography.
After this display period, it will be moved under-cover, packed in with other
equipment, essentially inaccessible for decent viewing or photography.

If any NYCSHS members  plan a visit during the coming month, it is suggested
calling the museum to verify display situation.
