The Columbia Recoved

Believe it or not the Columbia Engine was salvaged, repaired and placed back into service. This is a photo of the 35 ton Columbia, set upright and getting ready to be pulled up the hill out of the gorge. It is interesting to note the Columbia was decorated and came back to Ashtabula for the dedication of the obelisk at the grave of the unrecognized dead on the 20th anniversary of the disaster.
