The Burro Model 40 has resided in the restoration building for nearly ten years, the subject of extensive work by many dedicated volunteers. The Burro Crane was donated by Vitale Bros. Contracting in Piffard, NY. It came to them from the Foster-Wheeler plant in Dansville.
Since then, a Detroit Diesel 453 engine was installed about eight years ago, and a new air pipe line was installed from one end to the other to allow pass-through so it can be moved as part of a train.
It has received much attention, but it still needs a bit more work before it’s ready for service.
