Steam Saturday: No. 33 at Work on the Ohio Central

The former Lake Superior & Ishpeming 2-8-0 is a Consolidation type built to haul heavy iron ore trains in Michigan. It was retired in 1962 and wound up in Ohio on the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway where it operated for a few years.

The late Jerry Jacobson acquired No. 33 in 2003 and it made its first trip on his Ohio Central System two years later where it continued to operate occasionally.

After Jacobson sold the Ohio Central in 2008, No. 33 became part of the collection of the Age of Steam Roundhouse Museum where shop forces returned it to steam on Nov. 11, 2018.

The 33 was built by Baldwin in Philadelphia in February 1916.
