The American Freedom Train in Morristown, New Jersey
July 23-25, 1976

The train's 100th display city.

The train displayed on the grounds of the Mennen Company.

Ticket: John Hendricks collection

 
  Locomotive #1 (2101) spent some time in the shops of the Morristown & Erie Railroad -- her tender sticking out like a dog too big for its doghouse -- while the rest of the train headed to New York where Long Island Railroad diesels pulled the train through (under) Manhattan/Penn Station -- where the steam locomotive couldn't go.  
  LIRR handed the train off to Penn Central GG-1 electic locomotives after exiting the tunnels. Steam locomotive #2101 stayed behind for light repairs at Morristown and then the engine, two tenders and the crew car travelled through Selkirk via the old NYC West Shore, the ex-NYC mainline back, and up the old New Haven to rejoin the train at New London, CT.
