Remarks & Notes 
Old No. 90 with her extended smokebox, passing J-Tower. This photo illustrates the re-erection of J-Tower (a.k.a. LEMO Tower) a month before the 1985 convention of the National Railway Historical Society in Lancaster. The Lancaster Chapter NRHS acquired the tower from Conrail, had it cut into seven pieces at its original location in Lemoyne, PA, and moved it by truck to Strasburg, where the Strasburg Rail Road allowed it to be preserved in a fitting setting. The late Mr. Kenneth G. Murry of the Lancaster Chapter spearheaded and managed the project. The chapter is notable for some other preservation projects- the restoration of the Christiana (PA) PRR Stations; restoration of the clock at the Lancaster Amtrak station; preservation of PRR GG-1 No. 4800, the prototype GG-1; preservation of the Reading Company FP-7s Nos. 900 & 902 with assistance from the Philadelphia Chapter, and restoration of Conrail N7E caboose 21153.
