"Residents were there by the hundreds to welcome home one of their noteworthy product of a previous era. 'Old 299' had just returned from the Panama Canal Zone to its final resting place in the New Paterson Museum, a fitting climax for the 2-6-0 'Mogul' type steam locomotive that was born here in 1906. And June 6, 1979 marked the gala return of one of the few remaining American-made locomotives that were so instrumental in the construction of the Panama Canal by this nation in the period from 1904 to 1914, after earlier unsuccessful attempts by the French."
