"A Chugger Floats to Stardom"
This NY Times article discusses placing a former Erie (S1?) in a Brooklyn park.

“These switchers are so beloved to rail fans that they call them honorary steam engines,” Mr. Flagg said, “because like steam engines, they have character, and are closer to a living creature than any other kind of machinery.”
Uh, I believe he was mistaking this locomotive for a PA1.
