Remarks & Notes 
Lehigh Coal & Navigation Co. 0-4-0T No. 51

This unique 0-4-0T "Lokie" is a 4 wheeled 42" gauge tank switcher which was built for the Lehigh Coal & Navigation Co. at Lansford, PA, in 1923 by the Vulcan Iron Works in Wilkes-Barre, PA. After her retirement in 1957, she was donated to the Pine Creek Railroad in Freehold, NJ. In the early 1960s, the Pine Creek Railroad was re-organized as the NJ Museum of Transportation and moved to Allaire State Park near Farmingdale, NJ. Later the lokie was sold to the City of Easton, PA, where it was displayed at the National Canal Museum, looking pretty poor at this stage. Today, she sits cosmetically restored on display in Lansford, PA, at the Number 9 Coal Mine and Museum. The unique low profile design allowed the locomotive to fit under the colliery structures. A colliery is a coal mine and its connected buildings.
