STOLEN: Leslie S3J Horns from Green Mountain Alco #405

(The following information was posted on the Pan Am Yahoo group, but should be shared with the whole community in an effort to help the Green Mountain Railroad recover their stolen property)

Green Mountain #405's Leslie S3J Horns
Sometime in the very recent past, quite possibly this past weekend, the horns off Green Mountain (former Rutland) locomotive 405 were stolen.

This was not a spur of the moment theft as the manner in which they were attached tells that whoever did this had to have a plan and the proper tools to do the job.

These horns are an extraordinarily rare set of Leslie S3J and quite possibly the last set in operation outside a private collection. They are very easy to identify and CANNOT be sold on the open market without attracting attention.
