I am new to the forum and was told by a freind that this engine is still in existence somewhere. I was told it was moved from the Cartier railroad to somewhere in the US. Is this true???

The locomotive you seek is at the Arkansas Railroad Museum in Pine Bluff. I was told it was actually the UP 2907 that survived, but it doesn't matter which one it is. Ed Bowers was responsible for buying this locomotive and having it moved to Pine Bluff. :wink:
