Quincy & Torch Lake #6

An old steam engine, with many rusted parts, viewed at a sharp angle from the side.
The Quincy & Torch Lake #6 engine is finally back in the Copper Country!

The Quincy Mine now has three of its old steam engines back. The most recent addition is this massive iron beast: the old Q&TL #6. The train was taken away (for restoration) decades ago, but just sat rusting somewhere in New Jersey. Recently, the Quincy Mine Hoist Association was able to return the engine to its old stomping grounds. It's now on display in front of the old roundhouse, hopefully to be restored along with the surrounding area.
