Reading RR 4-8-4 No. 2100Posted by: Michael Ledingham on 2005-11-25 18:29:11.17
As of 11/05, the 2100 has been moved to Tacoma, WA for operation on the Golden Pacific Railroad. I believe its current owner is named Thomas Payne.

British Railways 4-6-0 No. 75029 'The Green Knight'Posted by: Steve Frost on 2005-11-24 10:47:53.717
After overhaul at Bury, the loco is set to return to North Yorkshire soon. The big news is that there has been a change of ownership - the loco has been bought for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway by a benefactor and will thus add a very useful loco to the line's growing owned fleet.

Consett Steel & Iron Company 0-6-0PT No. A No.5Posted by: Steve Frost on 2005-11-23 10:02:32.327

The classic 'long boiler' engine in tank loco form. Very much favoured in the 19th Century in the North East by minor railways and major railways too. The wheels are not evenly spaced with the trailing axle much closer to the driving axle than the leading axle is located. This leaves the firebox overhanging the rear axle, and can produce a 'waddle' if the speed rises too high. A rare survivor. I remember seeing one shunting the coke works near Winlaton in the early 1960's.

Recently appeared at the 1st birthday celebrations of Shildon Locomotion museum - in steam, of course.

London & North Eastern Railway 4-6-0 No. 8572 61572Posted by: Steve Frost on 2005-11-23 09:48:48.62
This is an unusual UK 4-6-0, as it has inside cylinders, unlike most other British 4-6-0 types. Originally built for the Great Eastern Railway to the designs of their CME, Holden, some were built for the LNER later on. This is the sole survivor of the class and is preserved in its rebuilt condition with a round topped firebox (Original would have been a Belpaire) and the cover over the coupling rods cut away - this was a real feature of the original design. Preserved and not restored for a long time, it was overhauled in Germany and now visits other railways, but its spiritual home is in East Anglia, where it is normally based.

London & North Eastern Railway 4-6-2 No. 4472 60103 'Flying Scotsman'Posted by: Steve Frost on 2005-11-22 16:07:54.5
The loco's German style smoke deflectors have been an issue. As they weren't fitted when the loco was in LNER ownership, being a late addition in BR days, they don't go with the apple green livery. The NRM removed them earlier in 2005 to see if they made a difference - and they do work it seems, so they've been re fitted - unauthentic with this paint or not!

West Virginia Northern RR 2-8-0 No. 9Posted by: Robert Kearns on 2005-11-22 14:20:19.41

North Eastern Railway 0-6-0T No. 69023 Posted by: Steve Frost on 2005-11-21 14:22:14.67
Currently the J72 is at Hopetown, Darlington where it is being stripped for overhaul.

Reader RR 2-6-2 No. 11Posted by: M. Cole on 2005-11-20 15:28:25.507
This engine is scheduled to be moved from storage in Paris and be moved (along with the rest of the KCR equipment) to KRM at New Haven.

Louisville & Nashville RR 0-8-0 No. 2152Posted by: M. Cole on 2005-11-20 15:26:21.66

This engine is still sitting at KRM coupled to the flatcars holding the original tender from L&N #152 and the Louisville Cement switcher. The engine is in rough shape and has considerable rusting due to the cowling around the boiler being removed. Most of the running gear appears to be gone as well as most of the removeable parts. The driving rods have been placed inside the of tender.

**Interesting find, upon inspecting the inside of the firebox I found a small pile of bricks, a cement bucket, and an old pair of gloves that have obviously been there a long time. The scene looked as if someone was replacing bricks in the top of the firebox over several decades ago and just left everything where they stopped.

Chesapeake & Ohio RR 2-8-4 No. 2716Posted by: M. Cole on 2005-11-20 15:18:21.75
#2716 is currently NOT under any specific restoration or even any regular public display. She is rolled out of the KRM yard very periodically (i.e. when Thomas the Tanks in town) for public viewing but is otherwise kepted out of the public eye. She is in fine cosmetic shape but it is sad to see such a wonderful piece just sitting tucked away. Last time I saw her she was sitting on the back track of the KRM yard stored away with the "operational" Monon BL-2.

Louisville & Nashville RR 4-6-2 No. 152Posted by: M. Cole on 2005-11-20 15:13:56.517
#152 has celebrated her 100th anniversary just last October. The KRM currently has her in pieces and will be doing heavy maintenance work on her for the next year. Thus #152 will be out of service until the 2007 season.

Morehead & North Fork Ry 0-6-0 No. 12Posted by: M. Cole on 2005-11-20 15:11:07.243
#12 is still on the old MN&F property in Clearfield and as far as I know, is still sitting waiting for a future in the old MN&F enginehouse unaccessable to the public.  

U.S. Army 0-6-0T No. 717Posted by: M. Cole on 2005-11-20 09:22:30.367
This engine is no longer in Kentucky. She was picked up and moved via flatcar in October of 2005 and is now in the hands of a private collector in California.

Louisville Cement Co. 0-4-0T No. 11Posted by: M. Cole on 2005-11-20 09:20:46.037
Locomotive is currently in very bad shape and sitting on a flatcar in the back of the KRM yard at New Haven along with the original tender from #152. This engine has an interesting gauge riding on rails spaced at 39 and 1/2 inches.

Lee Tidewater Cypress Co. 2-6-2 No. 4Posted by: M. Cole on 2005-11-20 09:17:25.57
Restoration of this locomotive has been brought to a halt and is now for sale by the common carrier part of the Hardin Southern Railroad. The Hardin Southerns partnership with the Mid-South group is reported to be no more and operation of the tourist train has also been stopped.

Southern Pacific RR 4-6-2 No. 2467Posted by: Michael Ledingham on 2005-11-19 00:34:37.527

The PLA has placed the 2467 on loan to the California State RR Museum of Sacramento, CA. It is now on display at there in the roundhouse.

Southern Pacific 0-6-0 No. 1233Posted by: Robert on 2005-11-18 17:32:26.783

WOW I thought the 1233 was still in use this comes as a shock to me. I thought the 1233 was owned by another group and leased to the Yolo. What is the status of the 1233 and the SP caboose 1156?

Southern Pacific RR 4-8-8-2 No. 4294Posted by: CJ on 2005-11-18 13:31:00.653

Very Large Engine!!! For anyone whom has seen this one up close, will know what I'm saying. Just shy of 127ft. lng. and well over 1,000,000lbs. when loaded. This sole surviving S.P. Cab ahead is a monster. My time in the cab while i was with the museum has given me a good understanding of what the conditions of driving one of thes giants was like. Most of the time this engine saw about 25-55 mph. There is a reel to reel papper tape speed recorder abord this train. It has been said, that at any time when this engine broke 55 mph, the speed would be recorded, and the tape revieued buy your train master. If he noticed the violation of speed, then your pay was reduced buy a fee. I have never been told buy how much. Its only a rumor, but fun to belive.

Southern Pacific 0-6-0 No. 1233Posted by: CJ on 2005-11-18 13:02:26.96
Sadly yes that is true. I'm am happy however that it will remain in the city, on display. I shure do miss that old train. I'm told by my old boss that the drivers have been replaced and should be trucked  to her old station soon. Well... I'm sure that she will be well taken care of, and I give my regards to the YSLR for all there trying, as hard as it was for us. I suppose this ebding will have to do.
