Steam Locomotive Weather Vane

This weather vane looks like the old Engine 494 at the White River Junction train station in Vermont. The Great Railroad Stations site describes this weather vane as a "copper steam locomotive weather vane. The locomotive was modeled from one of B&M’s P-2 class, 4-6-2 Pacific’s. " If interested in history and trains in New England, this link is a good one to read. I was at the station twice in May. Once to pick up Andrew and Dan and once to take them back to the Vermonter to return to Washington, DC. There will be many more Vermonter photos coming up.
