It was later sold to New York Susquehanna & Western Railway and renumbered to #142 along with being altered to look like a 1920’s locomotive with different lettering.

The Chinese SY type locomotive itself was designed after the Japanese built Mikado 2-8-2, which in turn was a variation of the design by the American Locomotive Company back in the 1920’s.

The New York Susquehanna & Western Technical & Historical Society runs excursions on the Delaware & Delaware River Railway in conjunction with New York Susquehanna & Western Railway which features this historic locomotive.
