Lehigh & New England ALCO S2 #611 at Alpha Cement

This 1949 ALCO S2 Switcher, obtained through the combined efforts of the Lehigh & New England Preservation Society and the Lehigh Valley Chapter of the NRHS, returned to Pennsylvania in May of 2016. #611 had been working a Grain Mill in Emporia, Indiana and was destined for a scrap yard before her purchase and rescue. Presently she is at the beginning of a restoration on the premises of the Allentown & Auburn Tourist Railroad, operating out of Kutztown, Pennsylvania. The original of this watercolor of 611 as she once was… is to be auctioned off as part of the restoration fund raising effort.
