Movin' Energy: The History of the Delaware and Hudson Canal 1828-1898 exhibit is housed in the 1993 addition.The Stourbridge Lion full size replica is the centerpiece of this award-winning exhibit. On August 8, 1829, its namesake, the first locomotive to turn wheel on commercial track in the United States, made its first run here in Honesdale. This replica also has quite a history of its own. The D&H passenger gravity car, the Eclipse, with its hand-stencilled ceiling and beautiful carved wood interior, and a paymaster's buggy share the floor space with the Stourbridge Lion.
