Granite Rock Company 0-6-0T No. 10Posted by: R.Freeman on 2007-04-17 23:08:54.173
If im not mistaken, i believe this locomotive pulled the military train in the movie " Pancho Villa" about the Mexican restistance leader Pancho Villa. They put a fake tender behind it, and took off its saddle tanks.

It was actually the Valley Railroad's 97 in Connecticut, not 40

Pere Marquette RR 2-8-4 No. 1225Posted by: Henry C. Parks on 2007-04-12 22:32:37.377
There is an error in the cylinder size it should be 26x34 not 26x24 as posted..... check the 1941 Lima Construction Number 7837 for Pere Marquette No. 1223 (from my copy of the Lima Construction List, Bulletin 123) Thanks....

Cavan & Leitrim Railway 4-4-0T No. 3 'Lady Edith'Posted by: Ben W. on 2007-04-12 17:58:34.127
I phoned the Pine Creek railroad recently and they sound like great people. By the way, Cavan & Leitrim Railway, Ltd. No. 3, also known as Lady Edith, had once double headed with the American built Surrey, Sussex & Southampton RR No. 26. It is not often you see an Irish steamer and an American Steamer double heading. Visit and you'll see what I mean. It should also be noted that this lovely lady is turning 120 this year and I hope to donate to this railroad soon and help her along with the other locomotives. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LADY EDITH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad 2-8-4 No. 2760Posted by: John Heid on 2007-04-11 20:38:54.89
the coach will probably have to be scrapped.

Norfolk & Western Railway 4-8-4 No. 611Posted by: John Heid on 2007-04-11 20:37:18.5
I heard that every week a group of volunteers come in and tow her back and forth a few feet to keep her bearings lubed. Guess that won't be needed anymore.

Union Pacific RR 0-6-0 No. 4466Posted by: Sean Das on 2007-04-11 19:49:18.953
If you ask me, a coal-to-oil conversion does not seem wise because: -The engine was built as a coal burner and (as long as there is coal available) it should remain a coal burner (in my opinion) -Many visitors to the museum are non-railfans who assume that all steam locomotives burn coal. -We don't have enough operating coal burners in the west -Firing a coal burner may be difficult, but that's the fun of it!

Cliffside RR 2-8-0 No. 40Posted by: John Heid on 2007-04-09 21:04:26.627
I believe this locomotive recently ran into a garbage truck at a crossing while going backwards. No significant damage, still operational

Chicago, Burlington & Quincy RR 4-6-4 No. 3007Posted by: John Heid on 2007-04-09 21:00:10.843
Yes, 3007 has a good boiler, and still has its boiler jacket. But the museum removed most of the running gear for its trip to the union. The running gear has not been reinstalled. Once at union, a new headlight was installed and the loco was transferred to barn 9, where it remains today. Since UP 428, J. Neils 5, and Frisco 1630 will be out of the shop soon, hopefully the 3007 can be moved in and restoration can begin.

Union Railroad 0-6-0 No. 77Posted by: Ben W. on 2007-04-09 20:30:00.657
According to a recent phone call I made, they told me that this engine is 70 percent done. I hope to donate to this railroad soon.

This 'Thomas the tank engine' character appearance is no longer how the engine appears. It has been returned to its original appearance as a typical Hunslet saddle tank by the Middleton Railway.
