Steam Saturday: Getting Service

September 3, 2022

Ohio Central 4-8-4 No. 6325 is being serviced at Bowerston on Aug. 13, 2004. The former Grand Trunk Western locomotive was built by American Locomotive Works in Schenectady, New York, in 1942 and sat for several year in Battle Creek, Michigan, awaiting a restoration that never was finished due to lack of funds. The Northern-type locomotive was later towed to Coshocton and restoration work resumed under Ohio Central auspices in 1998. The  “Queen of Ohio Central Rails” moved under its own power for the first time in 40 years on July 31, 2001.
