This H.K. Porter Steam Engine, Tank 0-4-0 locomotive is similar to the one involved in the Camp Creek Wreck of 1900 in McDonough. Coincidentally, the locomotive's number is the same as that of the Camp Creek engine: the "Old #7." This locomotive was built in 1933 and operated at the Western Pennsylvania Yards in Connellsville, Pennsylvania until the 1950s. It was one of the last of its kind to be built that operated off of steam. Coal fueled the fire in its boilers. In Pennsylvania, this train was Nicknamed the "Highlander." but to the people of Henry County, it's the "Old #7" once again!
