Canadian National Railway Co. 4-6-0 No. 1531Posted by: Juergen on 2005-07-19 20:05:26.79
This loco was actually renumbered to 1531 from 1322 in March 1958 not in 1956. Thats what the book "Steam At Allandale" says. Once this is fixed you can delete this note.

J & A Brown 0-6-4T No. 5Posted by: Kevin Jones on 2005-07-18 02:54:35.837

J & A Brown No. 5 was originally a condensing locomotive used on the Mersey Railway, Liverpool, prior to electrification of this railway in 1904. Four were sold to J & A Brown and overhauled in the UK (including removal of condensing gear) prior to shipment to Australia. No. 5 was derelict at Hexham for many years prior to being purchased by the NSWRTM in 1973. It has yet to be restored and was shunted into the storage sidings at Thirlmere in 1983. Of the three imported to Australia, only the crank wheelset of No. 8 also survives, on display at the Richmond Vale Railway.

I think The 3985 steam crew borrowed the smoke defelecters from sister engine 3977 for the 40th anniversery steam excursion in 1993 when 3985 was renumbered to 3967 because the 3967 had smoke defelcters an pulled the oringinal trip in1953 from Denver, Co to laramie, Wy

Sierra Railroad 4-6-0 No. 3Posted by: daniel Lindsey on 2005-07-13 08:51:01.8
The City of Parsons is in the process of building a museum for the area. Parsons, Tennessee was built as a railroad town and the Tennessee Midland Railroad later to become part of the Lousiville, Nashville & Chattagoona and late the Nashville Louisville "L&N" started operations in 1889. The short line route passing through Parsons became known as the "Pee Vine" Route. In 1936 due to the advent of a highway bridge over the Tennessee River near Parsons and the inability of the Railroad to Build a Railroad bridge at the location the Railroad ceased operation along this route. The primary Locamotive used at the time and over the preceeding years between World War I and 1936 was called the Cannon Ball and was numbered 201. We are trying to research the history of that locomotive. Many thought it to be a Baldwin, however, as we continue to research it appears in may have been a Rogers. It is a 4-6-0 with the rear wheels of the 6 spaced rearward of the other two forward 4 of the 6. On locating your site we find that our 201 looks almost exactly like your #3. Where can I contact someone who has info on this type locomotive or might be able to give me some info on your locomotive that I might use to further research. Yours is the only locomotive I have located that is like our 201 "CannonBall"

P.L.M. Stands for Paris, Lyon, Meditérannée. The tender, built in 1908 by the German firm Henschel Und Shön, in Cassel, is coming from a serie of 2-8-0 of an Italian design ordered by the Compagnie de l'Ouest (later amagalmated to Etat, later SNCF)to boost its traffic in Britanny.
