Stainless Steel Locomotive

"Train #33" is a stainless steel sculpture, 13 feet long and seven feet tall, and it weighs about a ton. Sculptor Glenn Murgacz had help from mechanic Ted Lorenz III. It's in front of a small restaurant and brewery. Murgacz originally wanted to sculpt a leaping horse, but Mike Cerami, owner of the brewery, suggested a train, since the brewery is near the town train station. The sculpture incorporates an actual train whistle and bell.

Murgacz scavenged stainless steel from local scrapyards and completed the locomotive in 2007.
