What kind of loco is in Hudson River Park?

Does anyone walk along Hudson River Park north of 55th Street?

I think it was around W. 66th St where I spotted steam locomotive from NY Central Railroad? Do you guys know what is that?

Thanks for help.

 

I do not believe any NYC steam power survived aside from 2 engines left out in chicago that were hidden in a closed shop by the yard workers.

I think (don't quote me on this) that's ex-Cross Harbor.

 

You are correct. :P

A bit of diggin around on the innernet shows it as being Cross Harbors #25, Alco S-1, built 1946, aquired by CHRR in 1983.

Ex Erie 307, ex Erie-Lackawanna 307, ex BEDT 25 (Brooklyn Eastern District Terminal)

#25's 3 other Alco stablemates went to the scrap yard.

That must have been the one that worked down in elizabethport, i've seen photos of it in original livery. I believe it had the white EL on the sides before repaint for the park.
