Built in 1855 by Rogers, Ketchum & Grosvenor in Paterson, New Jersey, this locomotive is preserved at the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History in Kennesaw, Georgia (where I presume the picture was taken), and it is listed on the United States National Register of Historic Places. It was arguably the first train ever hijacked.
