In partnership with the Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton, PA, the Tri-State Railway Historical Society agreed to send Morristown & Erie No. 19 to the park's annual RailFest event. The locomotive departed Boonton Yard on August 28, 2017. No. 19 was picked up by Norfolk Southern H02 as part of a special move to Washington, NJ. The following day, the engine was picked up by Norfolk Southern H-65 and taken to Allentown, PA. On August 31, No. 19 traveled with Norfolk Southern H-76 to Portland, PA where it was handed off to the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad for transport to Scranton. The D-L delivered No. 19 to Steamtown in the late evening of Friday, September 1.
