Courtaulds Ltd 0-4-0ST No. 1 'Caliban'Posted by: Steve Frost on 2008-07-26 13:58:46.473
The loco is at Carnforth, though dismantled and the pieces all over the large site. When I asked about the loco I was told that the frames were in the undergrowth and I'd need a machete to seen them (Strangeley, I didn't have one with me!)

I think I may have found the cab and saddle tank, but there was nothing to identify them. In fact, the only bit I could positively say was connected with 'Caliban' was the dome cover - with the loco's name chalked on it.

Furness Railway 0-4-0ST No. 25Posted by: Steve Frost on 2008-07-26 13:45:04.677
This very old loco has been in storage for a very long time, which is a shame because it is one of the few survivors from the Furness Railway, and one of the older locos still extant. The good news is that I was told at Carnforth today (7.26.08) that she's been sold to a new owner and that restoration should follow. The saddle tank, chimney and dome cover are stored on another part of the site at the moment. Watch this space!

Usina Ser Grand 0-4-2T No. 1Posted by: Grasiela Luiza Manzano on 2008-07-25 14:49:35.193

Estou preparando junto a Rede Graal um posto temático, no Estado de São Paulo, onde a nº 1 estará em exposição e em funcionamento a cada quinze dias, gostaria de colocar para os visitantes um texto com informações sobre a locomotiva. Seria até interessante se tivessemos uma história/aventura da nº1 durante sua atuação na usina.

Muito Grata, Grasiela

This locomotive IS currently on the shop floor in Cass, although it is a priority of the shop to get the other, previously operable locomotives (Shay #s 4, 5, 11) repaired first.  Sanding of the exterior appears to be the only work completed at the present time (as of October 22, 2005).

Shropshire & Montgomeryshire Light Railway 0-4-2WT No. 1 'Gazelle'Posted by: Steve Frost on 2008-07-19 13:56:33.24
This unusual survivor is that rarest of items - the private owner's 'personal engine'. Built for a wealthy business man, William Burkitt. He is said to have travelled from King's Lynn to Chesterfield on it, fulfilling a boyhood boast, although by then in his 70s. The loco really saw little use after this and was sold after Mr Burkitt's death to T.W.Ward, locomotive dealer and scrap merchant, who subsequently re-sold it to Colonel Stephens for use on the Shropshire and Mongomeryshire Railway as an inspection loco. It was rebuilt by Bagnalls and lost its original 2-2-2T wheel arrangement and its elegant Mansell drivers of 45 inch diameter in the process.

The Shropshire and Montgomeryshire was, like most of the Colonel's railways, a poverty stricken outfit, and would have died but for the Second World War when the army took over and operated it to serve ammunition storage in the area. They took to 'Gazelle' (Well, its cute, isn't it!) and this may have been instrumental in its survival. In 1950, the army handed the S&MR to British Railways, who promptly condemned everything - except 'Gazelle', which went to the Longmoor Military Railway on loan and eventually ended up in the Museum of Army Transport at Beverley. When that closed it has moved to the very appropriate site of the Colonel Stephens Railway Museum.

Southern Pacific RR 0-6-0 No. 1251 (V&T 30)Posted by: Big Al on 2008-07-17 22:34:38.78
This locomotive is in storage (as far as I know). The V&T purched this locomotive intending to convert it in to a 2-6-0, but all they have done is disasemble it, so dont expect it on the rail soon.

Carson & Tahoe Lumber & Fluming Co. 2-6-0 No. 1Posted by: Big Al on 2008-07-17 22:28:39.343
If I'm not mistaken, the NSRM is restoring this locomotive. It is sitting dissasembled in there shops awaiting a new boiler. The museum bought a boiler, but sadly it did not fit the frame.

Denver & Rio Grande Western RR 2-8-2 No. 476Posted by: Musa on 2008-07-17 08:16:29.81
Number 476 can physically be steamed up anytime, but she is not legal to operate. If she is to steam again, the crack in her frame will need repairs, new wheels & tires are needed, the boiler will need retubing, and new bearings will be needed. With lack of timing, the railroad has had enough trouble with their current operating locomotives. Engines 481, and 482 are under major overhauls, 473 just came out from her overhaul, and 478 will also be going in. This pretty much leaves 476 on the back burner sadly. Hopefully the railroad will find the time to overhaul old 476.

CFR(KPEV) 4-6-0 No. 38.3199(2580)Posted by: marius on 2008-07-16 17:52:59.03

FS 2-6-0 No. 625.116Posted by: Steve Frost on 2008-07-16 17:50:35.763
What an excellent photo of this Italian classic. It shows the leading Zara truck arrangement with the leading drivers and the front carrying wheels in a truck to give something of the effect of a 4 wheel leading truck. In Italy it is the 'Carello Italiano'.

It also shows well the outside valve chest and Walschearts valve gear on an inside cylinder loco - a feature not found very often but common on Italian 2-6-0s.

FS 2-6-0 No. 625.164Posted by: H.J. Ritz on 2008-07-16 08:08:12.36

This is not a 4-cylinder locomotive, but a 2-cylinder locomotive with inside cylinders and outside piston valves, activated by outside valve gear.

This applies to all locomotives of class  625 and class 640, too.


CFR(KPEV) 4-6-0 No. 230.096Posted by: Unknown on 2008-07-16 06:52:26.733
The locomotive was built by Linke-Hofmann Breslau. 230.096(ex 38 2506) Nr.Fab.1850-1919.

Ji Tong Railway 2-10-2 No. QJ 7081Posted by: Brady on 2008-07-15 19:48:14.31
The 6988 & 7081 are stored in Newton, Iowa, not Rock Island, Illinois. I have seen videos of these engines in videos, and they are great locomotives.  As I said, R.J. Corman has bought and tested QJ No. 7040 (now No. 2008), and it needs to be added to this website.

Ji Tong Railway 2-10-2 No. QJ 6988Posted by: Brady on 2008-07-15 19:34:42.983
I was wrong, the 6988 and the 7081 are stored in Newton, Iowa, not Rock Island, Illinois.  I've seen these engines in videos and they are very nice locomotives.  Like I said, R.J. Corman has bought and tested a QJ and it needs to be added to this website.
