K4 Locomotive Arrives

At Altoona's Railroaders' Museum, 1987



The famous K4 steam locomotive, one of only two remaining K4s in the world and the only one restored to operating condition, was moved from its longtime location at the Horeseshoe Curve to the Railroaders' Museum in Altoona in 1987, and short excursions were scheduled by the Museum after its relocation. This may have been a test run. This is a condensed version of the video, taken mostly by older son Michael, that marked the end of our visit to Pennsylvania that year.

Running time, 14 minutes, 14 seconds, "self-narrated."
