The Ludlow Silsby #725, a 5th. size engine was built in 1883. The old
engine which was thought to have been destroyed, by the Ludlow
FD, eventually found it's way into the Vermont Steamtown collection.
While in Vermont it was in a building collapse which did extensive
damage to the crown. When Steamtown moved to Scranton, PA it was
sold at auction to Bailie Rutherford and Stan Pratt. The engine
is now undergoing a cosmetic restoration.
