NKP 79 ALCo S4, "Eugene Redden"

According to good sources NKP 79 was built in 1953 by ALCo as a model S4, builders number 80488, NKP 79, Class ASM-10d. In 1964 it became N&W 2079.
This locomotive was sold to RSA Leasing in Sodus, N.Y. in 1982. They leased it to the Allegheny Southern Railroad in Pennsylvania where it became their number 17. The unit was returned to Sodus in 1985. In September 1987, it was purchased by John Redden, a private individual and moved to the museum. In 1993 and 1994, it was restored to its original Nickel Plate paint scheme and number. After many years of reliable operation at the museum railroad, the unit was taken out of service and stored by the owner in 2009.

According to: Christopher Hauf, "Donated a few years back to the museum by the owner and dedicated to his Dad, Eugene, who helped maintain the engine for many years before his passing. I had the pleasure of volunteering with both John and Gene for many years."
