The engine, built in 1915, was the last coal-burning steam ten-wheeler used on the Central Vermont Railway. The inscription “28%” on the coal tender indicates that the engine could drag 28,000 pounds of dead weight. No. 220 became known as the locomotive of the Presidents because it pulled special trains carrying Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. It was retired from service in 1956.

The private rail car "Grand Isle" was built about 1890. The luxury car’s mahogany-paneled parlor, dining room, and staterooms were high style for America’s wealthiest traveling citizens.
