Pennsylvania RR 4-6-2 No. 1361Posted by: Brady on 2008-05-12 16:54:22.197
The 1361 was built by the Pennsylvania Railroads Juniata shops in Altoona in May 1918. After nearly forty years of faithful service, it was retired in 1957 and placed on display at Horseshoe curve near Altoona. In 1985, the Railroaders Memorial Muesum in Altoona decided to move the 1361 to the museum. In 1986, they decided to restore the 1361 to operating condition, and she was ready by April 1987 when she made a test run to Bellefonte. She pulled several excursions in 1987, and made some crew training runs in late October, which a scene can be seen in the video on this website (it's worth watching just to hear the great whistle!)  It made some runs in 1988 until a bearing went out and the 1361 was taken out of service. In the late 1990's, the 1361 was moved to Steamtown in Scranton to restore it once again. The work and the money was all provided by the Railroaders Memorial Museum, not Steamtown. It was done at Steamtown because of their shops. Work was progressing at a slow but steady pace until July 2007, when the group ran out of money. The 1361 was taken back to Altoona where work will continue when there is money again. I think the 1361 will run again someday, but it may be a long time before it will. It's a great engine, and it is a shame it can not be steaming this year, as it was built 90 years ago this month.

Southern Railway 4-6-2 No. 1401Posted by: craig smith on 2008-05-11 09:49:15.553
You know i was wondering since the smithsonian has preserved the 1401 and is in excellent condition why can't they run it. I mean the president could use it for traveling i mean it would be better to see the president use a train and pulled by the 1401 would be a better site to see than him in a jet. Don't you agree? It would be like the early 20th century to see the president traveling by rail pulled by the 1401. I remembered the 1401 when i was 10 and it was a highlight of the vacation and i was impressed.
