Steamer to Move From One Park to Another

A 2-6-0 steam locomotive on static display in Michigan is moving to a new display site.

Mogul-type No. 6 of the East Jordan & Southern Railroad will move in early June from Memorial Park to Sportsman’s Park about a quarter-mile away.

The steamer has been in its current location since 1961.

The move is being made to make more room at Memorial Park. A city official told Trains magazine that in its new location locomotive will be more accessible to the public.

The city plans to put up signs that tell background of the locomotive.
