Steamer Arrives at Indiana Museum

The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum in North Judson, Indiana, received on Monday an operable 0-4-0T steam locomotive.

Bock Lumber Co. No. 1 was built by Baldwin in 1908 and will eventually pull excursions at the museum.

The diminutive locomotive was recently restored in Illinois and will be the only operating standard-gauge Forney-type locomotive in North America.

Steam-powered excursions are not expected to begin this year due to the lead time needed to train museum volunteers in how to operate the locomotive.
