Ex-Monongahela Baldwin Back in Service

January 7, 2022

A former Monongahela Railway Baldwin S12 has been returned to revenue service by a New Jersey short line railroad.

SMS Railroad overhauled former Monongahela No. 415, which was built in 1953 and later worked for Erie Mining in Minnesota.

The unit has been in southern New Jersey since 2005, Railfan and Railroad magazine reported on its website.

The former No. 415, now known as SMS Lines 304, is expected to be in service in the Pureland Industrial Park located near the New Jersey Turnpike.
