its second locomotive in July of 1899 (

The locomotive was ex-Philadelpha, Wilmington, & Baltimore #80.
The engine, whether suffering from mechanical difficulties or
the lack of a need for it, had been either scrapped or sold by
the time of the railroad's October, 1903 report of the
Official Railway Equipment Register.|
