W&WRR (private,stored), Hockessin, DE
" The B-6sa on the Wilmington & Western in Hockessin Delawareis easily seen. It's stored on a siding at where the tracks cross route 41 in "downtown" Hockessin (i.e., suburban Wilmington). It's parked behind 2 Reading MU's (in Septa paint). It can be seen easily without entering railroad property from the parking lot of an office/professional building complex off Yorklyn Road (the traffic light on route 41). I've no knowledge of steam restoration work, but to me this engine seems _at best_ a candidate for cosmetic-only restoration. It's pretty sad looking."-- Gary WeaverHere's some more info on #60-- "It was bougth by the Cemline Corp in the early 50s to be used as a stationary boiler. i saw it around 1980. It was in Harmarville PA, (photo) just over the hillside from route 28, directly underneath the bridge of the Pennsylvaina Turnpike. It was pretty well stripped and had no lettering visible but you could stilll climb in it like a kid even though it was sitting amongst trees and weeds and brush. it was close to a large corrugated industrial building, but was out of sight of almost everyone. I went back several years later and the engine was gone."-- Mike Kraynak, Pittsburgh, PA
