Canadian National 3254

The Canadian National 3254 steam engine is a 2-8-2 model built by the Canadian Locomotive Company in 1917.  The 2-8-2 refers to the type of wheel arrangement.  This steam engine was built to pull heavy freight trains.  It was retired in 1958 and eventually purchased by the Steamtown Foundation in 1987.  It now operates as an excursion train taking passengers to Moscow and Tobyhanna in the Poconos.   It is pictured here steaming past the downtown area of Scranton.
