Remarks & Notes 
One of the saddest sites among the deteriorating equipment at Steamtown is the Meadow River Lumber Company #1. The Meadow River Lumber Company, which operated in Rainelle, West Virginia from 1906 to 1975, was the largest hardwood sawmill in the world. The 1910 Lima Locomotives Class B Shay was a workhorse at the mill for many years. It then became part of the original Steamtown in Bellows Falls, Vermont. The Shay was damaged in a 1983 building collapse. Although this locomotive was moved to Scranton with the rest of the collection, it appears to have been neglected for many years.

After years of service, even the most reliable of locomotives get worn out.
