I dont know about it ever being in Oneonta..perhaps it was at some point, but it is better known for having been in Binghamton..
when CP took over the D&H in 1991 they used it for a time as a water tank in the East Binghamton yard..
It is tender number 35508, said to be from Challenger No. 1517.

CP then fixed it up, painted it, and used it as part of their steam program!

Actually, I am curious if this was in Oneonta until perhaps the early 90's..because I visited the East Binghamton yards several time during the Guilford era, mid to late 80's,
and I dont recall ever hearing about, or seeing, the tender there then..
