The first locomotive
to pull the the Cardinal's Train was an electric. Smoke restrictions
in the tunnels leading out of New York's Grand Central Terminal
dictated that electric locomotives move trains to the outskirts
of the city.
1162 was tasked with pulling the Cardinal's Train to Harmon, NY
where a steam locomotive took over.
