Erie E8 at Port Jervis

Pictures below are of the recently repainted Erie E8A on the turntable at Port Jervis, NY taken on 7-29-07. (See also posting below about this locomotive.) The E8A belongs to Jimmy Wilson, New York and Greenwood Lake RR. It was repainted at Ringoes, NJ and towed to Port Jervis by NS. New York and Greenwood Lake RR plan to put up an enclosure at the turntable area in Port Jervis which would encompass the E8A, the Alco(?), the GP9m(?) and two pieces of Private Varnish that have been refurbished and become a tourist attraction. They also plan to do passenger car restoration at this location.
