Little Joe No. 802

This locomotive was built by General Electric in Erie, Pennsylvania for Stain's Soviet Union in 1947. The U.S. Government barred its shipment to the Soviet Union, saying it was "critical war material." I took this photo in 1995, while it sat in a Conrail rail yard waiting on repairs to its air brake lines. It was bound for Lake Shore Railway Museum in Pennsylvania.

Little Joe

Little Joe worked for 40 years hauling coal and freight on the electrified rails of the Chicago South Shore and South Bend Railroad before retiring in 1987. Photos from the Lake Shore Railway Museum show this historic locomotive now has new paint.
