The Glover Machine Works of Marietta was the South’s last steam locomotive builder and produced over 200 locomotives in the early 20th century.

Glover locomotive #10168, built in 1925, is believed to be one of only a handful of Glover Machine Works locomotives in existence and the only one that is still capable of operating. It was recently discovered in a barn in Ohio.

New owner, Daryl Kirby of Kirby Family Farm, exhibited the locomotive and its tender at The Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History for a few hours Saturday before heading to the locomotive’s new permanent home in Williston, Florida.
