U&D 24

U&D 24 met its fate at Glenford on August 23, 1930, taking with it Engineer John Scully and Fireman Lester Reed. The engine was at the head of a passenger train, including the Adirondack which was carrying fingerling trout. All passengers, and the fish, escaped unharmed. Above two photos: Collection of P.M. Goldstein.
