Columbia, New York
05. May, 2021: In Columbia, New York the “Lackawanna Trail Park” is restoring a portion of the former Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad right‐of‐way, primarily as a walking trail. A short distance of railway track is also being reinstated on which a tourist train is planned to operate. Power for the train is Edaville 6, an 0‐4‐0T, 600‐millimeter gauge locomotive built by Henschel in 1936. At least for the time being, this locomotive is being operated on compressed air, not steam.

  • Edaville 6, 0‐4‐0T (Henschel / Kassel 23036 / 1936), 600‐millimeter gauge, “Weimar”

YouTube video (poor) of Edaville 6 operating using compressed air (and, presumably, with a small fire in the firebox, but without water in the boiler!):
