New engine in New Freedom to pull Steam into History tours


NEW FREEDOM, Pa. (WHTM) — Railroad lovers should head over to Northern Central Railway to see the newly purchased EMD GP9 diesel locomotive.

It’s 60 years old but in good shape. The locomotive will replace the one that currently pulls the Steam into History excursions.

The old engine was leased and goes back to its original owner next year. The rail company says it couldn’t pass up “buying” its own engine and has the staff to keep it maintained and operating.
