Title:  GNWR 20
Description:  Today's Genesee & Wyoming is a worldwide shortline holding company. However back in 1944 when this 80-ton locomotive was constructed the GNWR was a small shortline in western New York which mainly hauled salt from the mines around Restof. Number 20 was the shortline's first diesel and perhaps the first locomotive to wear the familiar G&W orange and black seen on so many shortline railroads in the 21st century. The locomotive served the G&W well until 1962 when it was sold to a construction firm and used to help construct the Kinzua Dam in Warren, PA. It arrived at the museum in 2016.
