Morristown & Erie "RW McEwan" (the first one)
Title:  Morristown & Erie "RW McEwan" (the first one)
Description:  M&E eastbound freight approaches Whippany station, passing O. Winston Link's ex-Rutland Combine Car parked off to the left. It appears that Al Holleuffer might be the engineer, but it could also be Frank McKenna. The RS1 is named after Richard McEwan, the first president of the M&E. This unit was built for the Navy in 1944, and was purchased second-hand by the M&E in 1963. This unit was later sold to the Valley Railroad in the mid 1980s and subsequently scrapped. (Another RS1, #21, was later purchased and is also named RW McEwan.)
