CFR(OeBB) 2-8-4 No. 142.072Posted by: Phil Horton on 2008-02-28 09:49:46.05
CFR No. 142.072, a 2-8-4 displayed in a public park in Resita. The loco works at Resita built many hundreds of steam locos for Romanian railways. Thirty six out of seventy nine class 142s were built there between 1937 and 1940. The class is based on the Autrian class 214, only sixteen of which were biult from near Vienna. Another class 142 (142.044) is preserved in working order in Romania while another has been purchased by Austrians and restored as a class 214.

Resiczai Vasgyár 0-4-0T No. 2Posted by: Phil Horton on 2008-02-28 09:47:55.85
ResiczaiVasgyár No. 2, a 0-4-0T. Although the loco shown in the photo as displayed in a public No. 1, I believe it is actually No. 2! (Ref "Steam ), Radu Bellu, Brasov 1994. No. 2 was the first loco built at Resita to 948mm gauge in 1872 by the Austrian State Locomotive works (StEG)who then owned the works. The area was then within the AustroHungarian Empire. The first loco built was numbered no. 2 because the prototype loco, the rreal No 1, had been built at the StEG in Vienna and named "RESICZA". The loco was built to the design of Scotsman John Haswell, then manager of the StEG. As the works were then physially isolated from the main state railway it had to be deliverd to rEsita by mule. This loco was subsequently scapped. No 2 which is displayed as No 1 was in use as a stationary boiler until 1950 after which it was preserved. The works at Resita subsequently built many hundred steam locos for use on Romanian Railways and for industrial use.

Western Maryland Ry 4-6-2 No. 202Posted by: Shawn on 2008-02-28 08:09:30.02
The 202 will be cosmeticaly restored starting in the spring baring there are no snags. The locomotive will be soda blasted and painted into locomotive black. The original stencils for the locomotive have been located and the owner of the stencils said he is willing to allow them to be copied. If all goes as planned an ultrasonic test will be done on the boiler, drivers/running gear in the spring.

CFR(KPEV) 2-6-0T No. 7311Posted by: Phil Horton on 2008-02-27 15:44:18.887
German built CFR(KPEV) No. 7311 at the museum at Sibiu depot on 9 May 1996. The loco is an examp0le of a Prussian (KPEV) class T9.3 2-6-0T. Other examples are also preserved elsewhere in Eastern Europe, eg Poland where they were PKP class Tki3

CFR(MAV) 2-6-2 No. 324.951Posted by: Phil Horton on 2008-02-27 15:43:32.177
MAV) No. 324.951 at the museum at Sibiu depot on 7 October 1997. Large numbers of this class of loco was built for the Hungarian Railways (MAV) before WW1. At the time Sibiu was in Hungary but when the Austro/Hungarian Empire was split up after WW1 it became part of Romania. For some reason some locos inherited by the CFR were not renumbered to their standard format. Most standard gauge numbering in Romania follows the French system and is based on the number of the loco's axils eg a class 150 is a 2.10..0 etc.

This locomotive when in service from it's purchase in 1966 by Roaring Camp from the Sutro Museum (in The City) until '83 or '84. She was disassembled soon after that, and finally rebuilt in 2001. We, at Roaring Camp, use her for shuttle trains during special events throughout the summer. She does not operate on the hill.

Elk River Coal & Lumber Company Climax - 2 truck No. 3Posted by: Ben SCHS on 2008-02-26 23:10:12.86
The locomotives restoration did not start in 2007, and with the current work being completed on the Sonora #7, the work on #5 will not likely begin in the foreseeable future. Roaring Camp not only has the #7 to finish, but also 3 other historic locomotives that we manage to maintain. Plus, there is no shop space for the #5...

CFR 0-8-0T No. 764.157Posted by: Phil Horton on 2008-02-26 11:28:58.69
CFR No. 764.157 at Tirgu Mures on 8 May 1997. Although displaced by diesels, from the 23 August Works Bucharest, in the late 1960s, many 760mm gauge steam locas remained in Romania as the diesels had been built without steam heating. In the cold Romanian winters a steam loco had to be added to the train as a mobile boiler. With the growth of tourism in the country after the end of Communism, several stean locos have been restored to work tourist specials. Unfortunately at the same time many of the long scenic narrow lines have closed.

Gulf, Mobile & Northern 4-6-2 No. 425Posted by: Colin Barner on 2008-02-25 21:58:37.457
The "Blue Mountain & Reading R.R." no longer exists and has not existed since June of 1995.  The railroad should be changed to Reading Blue Mountain And Northern and/or Reading And Northern. The location should be switched to Port Clinton, PA.  And most importantly, the status should be changed to operational!

CFF 4-6-0T No. 763.247Posted by: Phil Horton on 2008-02-25 09:28:28.33
CFF No. 763.247 is seen at the top of the rope-worked incline at Siclau and is waiting to work empty flat wagons on to Comandau on 11 October 1996. No. 763.247 is a 4-6-0T not a 0-6-0T. In the backgound a horse can be seen waiting to haul loaded wagons onto the incline platform which will then be lowered by rope to its foot. The only communications between the top and bottom of the incline was the engine whistles. I believe the incline is no longer functional

These locos were built in Romania at the "23 August Works" formerly the Malaxa Locomotive Works Bucharest in 1949. They can regarded as the Romanian version of the Polish class Px48 0-8-0s.
