A Steam engine probably hasn't been seen on the Hudson River in over 60 years.  The Number 63 is seen crossing The Hudson River at MP-NC9 on The Sanford Lake Branch for a test run.  An engine was schedule to run to Newcomb for their Town's Teddy Roosevelt Day, and as a surprise, it was the Famous Leviathan!  The train went as far as MP NC 22.6.
