Strangely, nothing is listed of it's patriotic history! This locomotive was originally constructed for the New York Naval Shipyard, "Brooklyn Navy Yard" #7.

There is a good chance that some day #7 will see steam again if time is found to completely restore her.

#7 is currently in the steam shop. Being the shop bosses favorite engine it is awaiting restoration and might run an a few years.
