Oporto #172 takes a trip by superhighway

April 14, 2003:

After several delays due to winter weather and mechanical difficulties, #172 has finally been moved to Lyons Repair of Ebensburg, where it will receive new wheels and axles, and have its rebuilt traction motor installed. Expect to see this neat single-truck, semi-convertible car back in service this summer.

Chuck K supplied the pic, but notice he did not get an NS train descending to Horseshoe Curve into the background...
