~~The Gertrude Emma was built by the Pullman Palace Car Company in 1898 as a sleeper-parlor-observation car for service on the new “Pennsylvania Limited” between New York and Chicago. At the time, Robert Todd Lincoln was President of the Pullman Company. Named Libertas, she was considered to be a work of art in color and ornamentation and was the pride of the Pullman shops.

After years of service, the car was retired from regular passenger service in 1938 and converted to a workman’s bunk car. She was rescued from scrapping and purchased by the Conway ScenicGE_Woodwork Railroad in 1975, where bunk room partitions were removed, and beautiful woodwork was discovered under layers of paint and grime.

This 115-year old car continues to enjoy a renewed life as First Class seating on our Valley Trains, transporting folks on a journey back in time to the grand old days of of railroading. She is shown behind our 1921 steam locomotive #7470.~~

~~Steam locomotive #7470 was built by the Grand Trunk Railway Point St. Charles Shops at Montreal, Quebec, in 1921 with serial #22/1500. It is a coal fired switching locomotive with an 0-6-0 wheel arrangement; it has 51” driving wheels and 22” x 26” cylinders. It develops 36,700 lbs of tractive effort.

Dwight Smith was one of the three original owners of the Railroad shown here with the 7470.

The weight of the locomotive in working order is 87 tons and the tender weighs 65 tons. The locomotive is equipped with super-heaters. Originally built as Grand Trunk Railway #1795, it soon became Canadian National Railway #7470, Class 0-18-a. It was acquired in 1968 by Dwight Smith, and in 1974 joined the start-up Conway Scenic Railroad as #47. It was renumbered to #7470 in 1989.~~

About suzi46

suzi46

Living in the mountains of Western Maine on a 15 acre 'gentleman's farm', in a hand hewn log home, has been a wonderful experience these past 6 1/2 years. But it was time to downsize and make a major lifestyle change..so that's what we did!! Going from the Mt Washington Valley region of Maine/NH all the way down to the "Horse Capital of the World"..Marion County in Central Florida! New photo ops in a totally new and intriguing area of this very large and varied state..let the fun begin!
