The Michigan-based Port Huron & Detroit Railroad Historical Society has acquired Alco S2 No. 52 from Knoxville Locomotive Works.

One of two Alco units delivered new to the Port Huron & Detroit in August 1945, No. 52 will join restored PH&D caboose No. 62. An anonymous donor made the acquisition possible.

Knoxville Locomotive Works will store No. 52 for two years or until a suitable facility is ready in Michigan.

The PH&D plans to restore the locomotive cosmetically to its pre-1984 condition and place it on static display.
