Remarks & Notes 
The 7002 switches from the old Pennsy onto the old Western Maryland, on its way to overnight in Hanover for the next day's commemorative trip to Gettysburg on the occasion of the 125th Anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Historian Fred Westing wrote in his book "Pennsy Steam and Semaphores" that he thought that the PRR light Atlantics were the best looking engines of their type in this country, "thanks to Theodore N. Ely, with his artistic flair, and Axel S. Vogt, who wrought locomotive details into efficient, yet graceful form." The 7002 was built by Altoona in August 1902 as No. 8063, a Class E2a, and was at home wheeling four wooden luxury cars at high speed over the old New York Division. It was rebuilt with slightly larger diameter cylinders in 1916 as PRR Type E7s, and was chosen to stand in for original speedster 7002 (scrapped in 1935) for the 1939 New York World's Fair. It was restored to operation by the Strasburg in the mid 1980s and last ran on December 20, 1989.
