Summary, etc.:
Reuben Wells was once the most powerful locomotive in the world, pushing instead of pulling train cars up Madison Hill in southern Indiana, the steepest railroad grade in the United States. In this fictionalized story, Reuben laments being replaced by more powerful engines, but instead of going to scrap he eventually winds up as an exhibit in The Children's Museum in Indianapolis.
