Delivery of Vulcan switcher to Brooklyn

Vulcan 20-ton #4353

This diesel-powered locomotive was rescued and brought to Brooklyn for use as our work trains. It was built in February 1943, for the Army Corps of Engineers and is believed to have been used in Brooklyn as part of the war effort. The original gasoline powerplant was replaced with a more powerful diesel engine sometime before acquisition by BHRA.
