This is the boiler of a 1929 PRR built LIRR steam engine captured one late evening in August, 2016. It's located in the yard at the Strasburg Rail Road, but no longer smoke box to smoke box pushed up against another of railroad's pending restorations, that being former CP 972. Click above in the "Road Number" field for pictures. No. 39 is owned by the Railroad Museum of Long Island and sits pending funds being raised for an eventual restoration to operation. Along with 4-6-0 #35, a sister to #39 is preserved across the street (PRR 5741) at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania and can be seen here.
