1876 View of the National Locomotive Works - Connellsville, PA
A view of the National Locomotive Works in 1876. After building the railroad engines in the building, they would then float the engines on a barge across the river and with cribben blocks would raise them up to the level of the B & O tracks. If it was a standard guage engine they would just place it on the rails. But if it was a narrow guage engine, they would have to place it on a flat car for delivery.
