With the steam season starting up again, its time to fire up the locomotives for another year of adventure and crafting memories. Keeping in theme with Essex Valley #40, this is the second of three locomotive in the Essex Valley railroad steam fleet. Known today as #3025, she was aquired by the company in 2008 from the former Knox and Kane railroad. Formerly #58 for the Knox and Kane, this locomotive would haul passengers across Kinzua Bridge to the camp grounds in the mountain side.

The coaches of choice are modelled after the current rolling stock used on the railroad today.
