Lehigh Stone Co. 2-4-2 No. 799Posted by: Sam Willard on 2006-10-05 16:25:59.06

The boiler of the locomotive has been removed and thrown away do to the fact that most of the weight was on the trailing wheel. It is being restored at Tweetsie and will probably done in a few years. When it is done it will be renumbered 15 and will run excursions at Doe River Gorge Christian Camp.

South Hetton Coal Co. 0-6-0 No. 'Nelson'Posted by: Steve Frost on 2006-09-28 16:56:27.82

Braddyll was built at Shildon, possibly in the building in which the surviving parts of it now stand, in 1847 for South Hetton Colliery. By the 1870's it was no longer working, and would have been an antique by then. It survived by dint of being converted into a snowplough. When the coal industry was nationalised, it was, at some time, taken to the NCB workshops at Philadelphia (the County Durham one!) where I can remember it being plinthed in the late 1960's.

It is different from the usual Hackworth types in that it had a firetube boiler rather than the return flue type that can be seen on 'Sans Pareil' on the same site. Was it built with this type of boiler or is it a later replacement or modification? The wheels, though, are typical of the Stockton and Darlington 'plug' type as seen on 'Locomotion' and 'Derwent' in the Darlington museum.

A remarkable and original survivor.

Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie RR 2-8-2 No. 1011Posted by: Doug Bailey on 2006-09-22 02:57:52.3
You should, perhaps, read the ownership history for this locomotive. It is accurate and the 1011 was never owned/operated by the Monon.

Lehigh Stone Co. 0-4-0T No. 800Posted by: Ed Kelley on 2006-09-21 13:12:53.473
Locomotive was converted in late '60s/early '70s to a 2-4-0 tender engine. Work was done by Sam Conti at Lakecraft Welding Co. Currently operable in this state at Rob Rossi's private Pacific Coast Railroad.

Astroworld 4-4-0 No. NonePosted by: Ed Kelley on 2006-09-21 13:06:14.43
I have no idea who this Mr. Emerson is but his information is grossly inaccurate. #1 is currently in service on the Pacific Coast Railroad at the Santa Margarita Ranch and remains oil fired (more specifically, No. 2 diesel) There are no plans for reboilering nor a conversion to propane firing.

Carbon Limestone Co. 2-4-0 No. 3 MyrtlePosted by: Peter M. Preston on 2006-09-20 23:25:28.88

A loaded dump truck hit a steamlocomotive on the Lahania, Kaanaplia & Pacific tourist railroad in Mali on September 7, 2006, causing the No. 3 "Myrtle" to derail.

Myrtle suffer front-end damage and losing her headlight. Myrtle is out of service for repair.


Canadian National Ry 0-6-0 No. 31Posted by: Christian S. on 2006-09-20 22:40:43.257

No. 31 has seen increased use this season filling in for #475, which has been down for much of the summer. Although she is normally reserved for the off-season (generally late-February through mid-April), she is still very much alive and well. Would be nice to see her chartered in CN livery.
