Western Pacific 0-6-0 No. 164Posted by: David Dewey on 2005-06-27 01:51:35.84

Park is being remodeled, but engine will stay in place for now. About two years ago, vandals (kindest word I can use) cut through the fence and removed both WP tender signs.

Southern Pacific 0-6-0 No. 1233Posted by: David Dewey on 2005-06-27 01:49:22.97
Saw this Locomotive on 6-20-05, under tarps, no drivers. Hope the new RR owners will put her back together!

Feather River RR Shay - 3 truck No. 1Posted by: David Dewey on 2005-06-27 01:38:03.73

There are many rumors about the condition of this locomotive, since it was used as a stationary boiler at the mill site for years before being donated. The boiler is intact, but there is no throttle, just a blanking plate over the steampipe to the engine, also a large pipe has been threaded into the steam dome cap.

The running gear consists of a mismatch of worn out parts and some new parts. The driveshaft bearings are not fitted to the shafts. The locomotve axle bearings were recently cleaned and lubed in preparation for moving the locomotive to a new location in the park.

Presently that move is on hold while the city investigates building a display building for both this engine and the WP 164.

Southern Pacific RR 2-6-0 No. 1727Posted by: David Dewey on 2005-06-27 01:27:44.16

Upon donation to Dunsmuir, the locomotive was hauled DIT to Dunsmuir from the Fresno area. It was placed in the Dunsmur Roundhouse, cleanded an painted for the display. According to first-person interviews in the early 1970's, the  roundhouse crew wanted to do a "good job" as their final farewell to steam. Displayed on the turntable during Railroad Days. After some wrangling as to its display location, the locomotive was hauled up to Mott, backed down to a siding where the tender was loaded onto a lowboy and trucked to the present site, a week later the locomotive itself followed. The current fence was erected a few months later when vandalizm was noted by the city fathers. In 1976 the boiler was pressure tested to 120lbs. The whistle was blown on air for RR Days and the Bicentennial, boiler drained, plugs pulled, and all bearings grease (using the McCloud Railway Locomotive grease gun). It has been cosmetically restored a least three times. A semaphore signal was added to the display by the Friends of the 1727, a small organization dedicated to trying to keep the 1727 restorable.

At present there are no plans for it's relocation nor operation.

McCloud River RR 2-6-2 No. 25Posted by: David Dewey on 2005-06-27 01:12:27.493
"Dontated to the city of McCloud" is the latest word. McCloud Railway is up for abandonment, with planned removal of tracks east of McCloud, and the line to Mt. Shasta being relegated to an "industrial spur."

Southern Pacific Co. 4-8-4 No. 4449Posted by: Chris Kovacs on 2005-06-26 17:19:09.31

Boyne City RR 2-8-0 No. 18Posted by: Christopher Kovacs on 2005-06-26 17:14:17.44

I'm a 12-year old train fan and I miss A&A #18!! As of June/July 2005, 2-8-0 #18 is still undergoing repairs in several sections of her boiler, to meet the new FRA boiler safety regulations.   No specific date has been set for the #18's resumption to service.

Doxford Shipyard 0-4-0CT No. 'Hendon'Posted by: irene anderson on 2005-06-26 12:49:17.073

Does Tanfield Railway get ay kind of funding,  for restoration,such as the national lottery? if not why not, it certainly should.


Consolidated Mines Co. 0-4-0T No. 35Posted by: Eric Sitiko on 2005-06-26 11:01:23.737
This porter ran in Lincoln Neraska as a steam dummy. When brought to AZ cab was shortened to resemble a standard locomotive. Details still that of a steam dummy. Best example, sliding door at cab rear, curved bumper rear, and wood trim over steam dome has arch for doorway, when that wall used to be in front of smoke box. Loco operated in ~'85 for a Prescott rail event, that was reason for cab being restored/ rebuilt. could be made operational, just time and money (and that lap seam boiler)

Bridgton & Saco River RR 2-4-4T No. 8Posted by: Eric on 2005-06-25 21:47:23.013
Bridgton & Harrison #8 was built in 1924 for the Bridgton & Saco River Railroad. She was the last two foot gauge steam locomotive built for American use. The B&H closed in 1941 and the #8 was saved by Ellis D. Atwood of South Carver Mass. for use on his Edaville railroad. #7 operated for the same railroad.

Texas & Pacific RR 4-6-0 No. 316Posted by: LT Brandon H. McElroy on 2005-06-25 04:17:39.167
201 has just been refitted with a brand new boiler as of the summer of 2004.  As she is the Texas State Railroad's smallest locomotive, she cannot pull a full consist of passenger cars over the steep grades of East Texas.  Primarily she has been used as a "film locomotive" for various movies, in that 201 is also the oldest locomotive in the park after her sister engine #200, was traded to the Tarantula R.R. in Ft. Worth in the late 1980s.

U.S. Army No. 2 is located at the Cascades Camp and Conference Center in Yelm, Washington.  I have verification from the owners that the locomotive is definitely there and used for camp activities.  It is not operational, but can build steam, produce smoke, and has a functioning bell and whistle.

Romanian State Railroads 0-6-2T No. 395-104Posted by: Chris Little on 2005-06-19 22:29:37.803

I went to the zoo today and I have to tell ya Riva is running very well and the top of the boiler looks great. However if ypu are planning to go to the zoo in the next week or several minths the Riva might be a little strange because they haven't painted the Tanks green yet so they still look black and the rear headlights are gone from their hinges because there was a little accident with 119 and crushed its rear headlights so they are making new ones and haven't gotten done yet but once they are they'll be put onthe hinges and everything will be good for the Riva. Well then again theres another problem the front coach had one of its aksles broken so the Second coach will have to be hooked up to the trains until they get a new aksle which should be soon. This also means that the third coach will stay hooked up when they switch to 119. the third coach usually has to be unhooked sense 119 can only pull 4 coaches and they decide to originally to have the 4 & 5 coaches hooked up behind the 1 & 2 coaches because its a lot easier to get the signals from the 5 coach which is handicap acessable and where the condutor sits.
