Other Lost Engines

The Lost Engines of Roanoke is about four remarkable engines that somehow survived the end of the steam era, only to face an uncertain future today. While they are - perhaps - the most dramatic examples in America, they are by no means alone. This section was created to highlight some other forgotten engines around the country.

Fortunately, since this page was created, all of the locomotives currently listed here have gone to new homes for cosmetic restoration and display. Although these stories have a happy ending, in all likelihood there are a number of other "lost" or endangered engines out there that deserve a better fate.
