Not only sad but a waste as well. Too bad the owner saw it only as scrap, short-sided for sure.

That's...really sad...and dumb.

Shame on Omnitrax for letting these units rot away for all these years. Nice shot!

use to watch that little engine switch when running my Metra train . A very sad day . If that was a SF engine , there would be a shrine .

Such a haunting image showing a doomed locomotive surrounded by fog! Unfortunately, some locomotives escape preservation and are sent to the scrap yard. The same thing happened to the very first PRR k-4 #1737. Nice write up and great photo!

Theres one thing I dont understand here. If feelings were so high on what is most certainly a historic locomotive worth saving, then why was the money not raised and offered to the owner of the locomotive in its scrap value ? Atleast thats how it works in the U.K, Ive seldom seen any locomotive 'given away' for free.

These units were basically shoved into the roundhouse and forgotten about, except to the vandals who stole anything they could off them.
