Astroworld 4-4-0 No. NonePosted by: E Kelley on 2005-08-02 17:04:05.273
Gauge is 36", status is operable, at least as far as I know. Management of this park is apparently somewhat reluctant to let steam go and last I heard had a crew come up from the Austin Steam Train Association to put a fire in the remaining of the two Harpurs on select Sundays during the operating season.

Union Pacific RR 2-10-2 No. 5511Posted by: Robert on 2005-07-31 07:27:51.333
I heard a while ago all they would have to do is tac weld the rods together to find out there length then go to a foundry and have new ones cast and machined. The other thing is why not put it on a flatcar and send it to Ponoma Ca and park it by the UP 9000.

New South Wales Government Railways 4-4-0 No. 1210Posted by: Paul Bird on 2005-07-30 09:00:45.45

This is 1210.

Built in 1878 by Beyer Peacock, Manchester, England.

It is owned and operated by ARHS ACT Division, Canberra.

The locomotive's top boiler pressure is 140psi.

South Australian Railways 4-8-2+2-8-4 No. 402Posted by: Paul Bird on 2005-07-30 08:57:49.09
This is well and truly the wrong picture, the picture if of 1210, preserved in operation by Australian Railway Historical Society, ACT Division, Canberra. This is an 4-4-0, built by Beyer Peacock in 1878, is is one of the oldest operating steam locos in the world.

New South Wales Government Railways 4-4-2T No. 1301Posted by: Paul Bird on 2005-07-30 08:51:06.76
This loco was used once on the RTM's vintage train in the mid 1970's. I would like to know the machincal condition of the boiler?

New South Wales Government Railways 4-6-0 No. 3526Posted by: Paul Bird on 2005-07-30 02:57:46.777
This locomotive is operational with the NSWRTM, and has been since March 2004.

New South Wales Government Railways 4-6-2 No. 3801Posted by: Paul Bird on 2005-07-29 23:04:22.65
3801's top boiler was originaly 245psi, but when it was rebuilt/restored between 1983-1986, the pressure was droped to a top working pressure of 215psi. This loco is due for a new boiler in the not to distant future, and the new boiler will allow it to steam at it's original top pressure of 245psi as said at top of this info. All the C38 class locomotives were at this top, and in doing so, are in the history books of being the locomotives with the highest boiler pressure in Australian steam locomotion. Thank you you question, hope this helps.

South African Railways 2-6-2+2-6-2 No. 140Posted by: Tyler on 2005-07-29 15:26:48.05

140 is currently being restored to take over for the other NGG16 Garratts when their boiler tickets expire and require overhauling. (#138 in 2007, #143 in 2008) 

NCB Scottish Division, Bank Colliery 0-4-0ST No. 8Posted by: Paul Bird on 2005-07-29 07:44:07.423

In NSW Australia, we have two of this type of saddle tank steam locomotives preserved, the following were built by Barclay in Scotland. They are Alison and Marian, both are now preserved, Marian is a Dorrigo Steam Railway & Museum, far North Coast NSW. and Alison is currently at New South Wales Rail Transport Museum, just south of Sydney. Both are in storage, but Alison may be heading to another society, Glenreigh Mountain Railway, on the other side of the Dorrigo line. Two other close sister locos are Marjorie built by Clyde Engineering of Sydney NSW in 1938, being a copy of Kathleen built by Avonside in 1921, Bristol England. Both are preserved at Richmond Vale Railway Museum, Marjorie is in operating condition, with Kathleen being restored to service by late 2006.

Thank you.

New Orleans Sewerage 0-4-0CA No. NonePosted by: Richard on 2005-07-28 22:40:24.363
We have all the parts for this locomotive. They where removed before we put it in the park. The loco was moved in 2003 to our yard on Jefferson HWY. in New Orleans. Plans are to restore it to running condition. This porter has one cylinder bigger then the other it used the same air twice. Theirs a small air tank in the middle of the train to hold the low pressure air and also works like a condenser for the High pressure air. Richard Jacobs Ex. Dir. Louisiana Railway Heritage Trust

Ft. Wilderness Railroad 2-4-2T No. 4Posted by: Michael on 2005-07-27 14:55:39.73

Fort Wilderness RR #4 is actually in Livermore, CA, not Camarillo as stated.  The photo shown by #2 is actually a photo of #4, located in my backyard.


House of David 2-6-2 No. 903Posted by: Tammy Clark on 2005-07-27 05:13:59.757
From what I understand the House of David is no longer running, therefore the trains are being stored.  However one of the engines ( House of David No. 901-2-6-2) and several of the cars has been purchased and re-done by the Northwest Ohio Railroad Preservation in Findlay, Ohio.  This train is completely re-built and is up and running and great to ride.  I myself rode the train as a child (probably the last time being in 1977?) and I have since rode the one that was re-built in Ohio.  It brings back many memories of riding the train from one side to the other and back.  Please feel free to contact me in regards to the operational House of David train.  I live in Findlay and my mother is part of the Northwest Ohio Railroad Preservation group that has done the work on the train.

New Haven 2-8-2 No. 3025 (1658)Posted by: Doug Bailey on 2005-07-26 16:33:25.847
Certainly, the photo of the locomotive suspended on a crane was taken when the locomotive was being removed from the ship that brought it from China to the United Stats.

Gainesville Midland RR 2-8-0 No. 301Posted by: Sam Willard on 2005-07-26 15:00:45.833

Taking a look at the photo, does anyone know when it was taken AND WHY IN THE HECK 1658 WENT UP ON A CRANE?????

Buffalo Creek & Gauley RR 2-8-0 No. 13Posted by: Isaac on 2005-07-26 07:28:01.473
I know this engine is inoperable, but does anyone know its problem?

Lake Superior & Ishpeming RR 2-8-0 No. 33Posted by: Isaac on 2005-07-26 07:14:15.797
This engine has been steamed up a couple of times and I wouldn't be surprised if it's fully operational now, however if it is, it won't operate until next season because they aren't operating any excursions in 2005. Maybe it'll go to that Dennison Railfest 2006...

Alberni Pacific 2-8-2T No. 7Posted by: Tyler on 2005-07-25 17:47:53.907

MacMillan-Bloedel acquired this engine in 1953 and renumbered it #1007. After falling through a bridge over the Franklin River, an accident which killed the engineer and head brakeman, #1007 was rebuilt and numbered #1055 in 1954. It continued mainline service until 1969 and was put into mill switching service until 1973. The BC Government acquired #1055 in 1975 and donated it to The City of Port Alberni in 1991. The engine was restored to its Alberni Pacific #7 appearance and has been operational ever since.

This engine has the distinction of being the last steam locomotive in BC to haul logs.
