I think part of it is in my tailgate, and possibly the drivers side door. It was left outside, froze, broke the block, then left to rust away, before being cut-up, hauled off, then shredded. Sorry :(

There is a ex-SOO Line RS-1 sitting in Whippany and the eventual plans are to paint it into a 1960's style Morristown & Erie paint scheme.
I believe the dedicated volunteers eventually want to change the number to 15 and make it look identical to the original engine that was scrapped.
