Steam Locomotive at Cold Spring Harbor?

Post by JJMDiMunno » Tue Oct 07, 2008 3:23 pm

Hey guys,
Posting this here in addition to a few other PRSL lists to see if anyone has an idea...

I had someone tell me a story the other day concerning a steam locomotive at Cold Spring Harbor in Wildwood. The gist of his story was that some time ago (obviously), a steam locomotive derailed and tipped over while attempting to turn on the loop at Cold Spring Harbor. The locomotive landed upside down in the muck of the bay and could apparently not be recovered. He claimed that for many years, the wheels of the locomotive could still be seen when the tide was extremely low. Does this seem to ring a bell for anyone? Seems kinda like a local legend to me...I've never heard of it personally.
