Remarks & Notes 
Former Knox and Kane #39 is on rails that it once ran daily while in service with the Johnsonburg, Kane, Warren and Irvine RR, a lesser known Cornell owned railroad. Unfortunately, she will never again see the Knox & Kane rails, as this closes a chapter in the book of Knox & Kane history. Fortunately, there is a sequel, as the Georges Creek Railway purchased #39, and Im sure Gerald Altizer and his team will do another stellar job when they restore her back into her original Western Maryland Circus paint scheme. After the arson, on a sunny day you could see the Western Maryland lettering showing through, and note the Chessie paint showing on the nose. Click here to see a Donald Haskel photo of #39 in her youth, and what she will be restored to.
