Further affirming what Andrew and Ben have said, location needs to be changed to "Southeastern Railway Museum" in Duluth, GA. Also, status needs changing to "Display."

I am pleased to announce that this locomotive has been given the the Southeastern Railway Museum at Duluth, GA.  It will be cleaned up and displayed for the time being in its Stone Mountain livery, but may be returned to one of its earlier identities at some point.

This locomotive last operated under steam in 1986. It would be the last Stone Mountain Scenic RR locomotive under steam.

 The Stone Mountain Scenic RR had used a diesel assist since the mid 70s. The diesel was only assisting the steam locomotives when climbing the 2% grade on the backside of the mountain. The Stone Mountain Memorial Assoc. took over in the early 80s and just didn't want to maintain steam operations and the operation turned more to the steam locomotives assiting the diesel. then finally no steam at all after the spring of 1986. 

 Later this locomotive would be repaired enough to be pushed by diesel. As of this writing (May 2004, it has been parked for about 5 years.

I ran the Stone Mountain steam locomotives in their last years of service and sorely miss them. I had hoped to revive steam when I was shop foreman in 1998 but the Silver Dollar City people (current operators of Stone Mtn Park) had no interest except in making quick cash.
