Pennsylvania Railroad EMD E8 No. 5888 was built in 1951.

Railway Museum of Greater Cincinnati
The Railway Museum of Greater Cincinnati (RMGC) is a railroad museum located in Covington, Kentucky and is a non-profit organization of volunteers working to preserve the historic rail artifacts of the Cincinnati region. The museum is open to the public most Saturdays, May thru October.

Collection
The museum owns and maintains a collection of historic railroad equipment located on a 4-acre (16,000 m2) site.

The museum was founded in 1975 when a club of local railroad enthusiasts decided to run passenger cars on Amtrak trains. Several local members purchased cars for this goal. In the late 1980s, Amtrak tightened its restrictions on passenger cars, making it too expensive for most private citizens to keep them up.

Though the Amtrak excursions ended, the cars remained as the core of the present collection. At that point the goal of the museum changed and now focuses on the preservation of the equipment. Tom Holley, former Chairman of the Board, stated "Now the primary purpose of the museum is the collection of the equipment that belonged to the seven railroads that entered Cincinnati."

Pennsylvania Railroad E8 locomotive No. 5888 has been recently undergoing restoration. A "theatrical" baggage car (the  Juliet, one of 47 built by the Pennsy between 1917 and 1922) sits on the track beside the locomotive and will serve as a mobile staging area for the renovation. The museum also has a large collection of Pullman-Standard cars including the Metropolitan View built in 1938 for the PRR's Broadway Limited, and a BM70nb railway post office (PRR No. 6518) modernized for the same train.

Some of the other equipment includes former PRR No. 9408, an EMD SW1 switcher, a preserved Dinky, Brookville BMD 15-ton switcher, former Baltimore and Ohio Railroad modern lightweight coach the La Paz, a preserved troop sleeper, an early Southern Railway business car, and former CRIP No. 428 (El Comedor) dining car.
