Because a cat is said to have many lives, the Chessie kitten is the perfect emblem for this locomotive! Built by Baldwin in 1923, it was converted in 1945 to a faster , more powerful T-1 by the Reading Railroad. After being relegated to a scrap yard, it was rescued and restored in 1974 to become one of three locomotives that proudly pulled the American Freedom Train on a 25,000 mile tour celebrating Steam Special, in honor of the 150th anniversary of the B&O Railroad. Later, after being severely damaged in a roundhouse fire, the locomotive was restored once more. It is now on exhibit at the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.
