She was (and still is) a beautiful engine, but was really worn from her age. Almost every time she ran at Penn View, extensive weld repairs were needed to her drivers.

This loco was one of the engines used by Sloan Cornell's long defunct Penn View Mountain Railroad at Blairsville, PA.

THis is not a orig. Steamtown engine, it was donated to the park in the late 1990's from a camp ground(?) in pa.

No. 8 is now on display at Steamtown as the "sectioned" locomotive.
