The 1893 replica of the 1831 DeWitt Clinton steam locomotive is shown in operation with its three carriage train, in New York City. The DeWitt Clinton was the first railroad locomotive to operate on the Mohawk & Hudson Railroad in New York. The reproduction seen here was built in 1893 by the New York Central Railroad for the Columbian Exposition in Chicago. This footage was shot on July 17, 1921 when the DeWitt Clinton train was preparing for a trip to another exposition in Chicago. On this day it ran several times from 96th to 116th streets in New York City. New York Central employees are seen on the drain, dressed as passengers would have been in 1831. This replica was later displayed at Grand Central Terminal in New York City, and is is now on display at The Henry Ford museum in Dearborn Michigan. It was acquired by Henry Ford in 1934, in an agreement with the New York Central that it would continue to travel to events on occasion.
