New York Central 4-6-4 Hudson tender
Perhaps the last surviving large relic of the New York Central's fleet of 4-6-4 Hudsons, X5313 went along with its locomotive to the TH&B; the locomotive itself was scrapped in 1954, but the tender was converted to a steam generator car, surviving in that form for decades before being retired to Steamtown.
