Abstract:
The steam locomotive, Cliffside Railroad 110, operated on the three-mile Cliffside Railroad in Rutherford County from the early 1900s until it was replaced by a more efficient diesel in 1962. The locomotive has been in residence at the Stone Mountain Park in Georgia for a number of years, but it was recently returned to the New Hope Valley Railroad Association in Wake County. The Association plans to restore it over the next five to seven years at an estimated cost of $350,000 to $500,000.
