Two steam engines in York County will soon give people the chance to re-live Civil War Railroad History.
The “Leviathan” will join its sister engine, “York 17″ on the Steam into History tracks.
Conductor, Roger Cutter says Leviathan is “drop dead gorgeous, like our York 17, its brass, its colors, it’s art…You get to see locomotives that are 1860′s era and there are no others in the country that you can go see under steam, you can see them at museums, but they don’t come alive like what you see here.”
Passengers are sharing in the excitement.
Jeff Doll, of Parkton Maryland says, “So it’s not forgotten, it’s the idea of keeping history alive. We’re not going to see anything like this in another 20 years.”
Gloria Link, of New Oxford says, “Oh I think it’s fascinating, I really do. To think that everything that happened in our area, years ago to get us to the country we are today.”
The train will rest at a top-secret location until a truck takes it to the tracks in New Freedom, November 8th.
