U.S. Army No. 2 is located at the Cascades Camp and Conference Center in Yelm, Washington. I have verification from the owners that the locomotive is definitely there and used for camp activities. It is not operational, but can build steam, produce smoke, and has a functioning bell and whistle.

I went to the zoo today and I have to tell ya Riva is running very well and the top of the boiler looks great. However if ypu are planning to go to the zoo in the next week or several minths the Riva might be a little strange because they haven't painted the Tanks green yet so they still look black and the rear headlights are gone from their hinges because there was a little accident with 119 and crushed its rear headlights so they are making new ones and haven't gotten done yet but once they are they'll be put onthe hinges and everything will be good for the Riva. Well then again theres another problem the front coach had one of its aksles broken so the Second coach will have to be hooked up to the trains until they get a new aksle which should be soon. This also means that the third coach will stay hooked up when they switch to 119. the third coach usually has to be unhooked sense 119 can only pull 4 coaches and they decide to originally to have the 4 & 5 coaches hooked up behind the 1 & 2 coaches because its a lot easier to get the signals from the 5 coach which is handicap acessable and where the condutor sits.

According to MRSRR's page, this engine has 34,687 lbs. of tractive effort.
|Condon, Kinzua & Southern RR Heisler - 3 truck No. 91||Posted by: Nick McLean on 2005-06-17 18:46:07.697|
Check on the tractive effort for this engine. 43,600 is too high. Heisler #6 at Cass is only shown as having 22,650 lbs. of t.e. The dimensions of these 2 engines are nearly identical aside from the 91 being superheated and having piston valves.

|TCDD 2-8-0 No. 45011||Posted by: John Sieber on 2005-06-16 17:01:29.353|
Care for a bit of speculation? This TCDD locomotive looks like a Deutches Reichsbahn 56.20-29 2-8-0 with a 3T20 tender. It even has the black over red paint scheme. I'm not an expert on DRG locos. I'm basing my comments on the Fleischmann web site that gives data for their N-scale model. I recently received one as a gift. The only apparent difference between the Fleischmann model and the TCDD loco is the extra dome covering some of the appliances on top of the boiler. Fleischmann gives data on the DRG locos: 1390 HP (1023 kW), 120.4 Tons, geared for 65 km/h. Your web site gives the builder of the TCDD loco as Nohab. It possible they either built to the German specifications or they changed the builder's plate at some point? My friend from Germany told me these locos were used in Germany in the 1920's, 30's and 40's.

The "Samson" is no longer located in this display area. It was
moved to the Museum of Industry in Stellarton, Nova Scotia.
From the museum description:
"In the Age of Steam gallery, meet Samson, Canada’s oldest
surviving steam locomotive. Built in 1838 by Timothy Hackworth
at his Soho Works in Durham, England, Samson represents an
early stage in the design of the steam locomotive. This example
of the technology of the Industrial Revolution was commissioned
for Nova Scotia’s coal industry, and worked for many years both
on and near what is now the museum site. In 1893 it was
displayed at the Chicago World’s Fair as an antique, and then
came into the possession of the Baltimore & Ohio Railway until
its return to Nova Scotia in 1928."

#4460 and #4449 are the only existing GS Class locomotives today. 4460 has rolar bearings on all axels which sperarted it from the other classes below. 4449 was on display in Portland OR. in a amusment park. 4449 is running today and has been recently painted back to the true Daylight colors.

|New South Wales Government Railways 0-6-0ST No. 20N||Posted by: Kevin Jones on 2005-06-10 17:41:27.943|
Originally a construction contractor's locomotive, before being sold to the NSW Railways in 1872 and used on the Northern (Newcastle) division for coal trains. This very historic locomotive is typical of short-haul freight locomotives used for coal haulage duties in the period. Condemned in 1890 20N was sold to J & A Brown in 1891 for use on their private colliery railways and renumbered No 4, where it remained in operation until 1967. Purchased for preservation by the NSWRTM in 1973 but as yet unrestored. An interesting feature of this locomotive is the use of wooden brake blocks.
|North Staffordshire Railway 0-6-2T No. 2 2271||Posted by: Steve Frost on 2005-06-10 17:18:01.583|
This, an example of the 'New L' class, is the last surviving steam loco from the North Staffordshire Railway. Like most UK systems, the 'Knotty' built some of its own locos, but the grouping of 1923 swept away many of those from consituent companies of the LMS, as that company sought standard types. This one survived, like so many pre-grouping gems, as a colliery loco. Recently it has moved from Cheddleton to Shildon, County Durham to the 'Locomotion' museum. This seems a pity, as it was nice to think that it was in Staffordshire. There is one other NSR loco in existance, but its a battery electric.
|Pennsylvania Power & Light Co. 0-6-0F No. 4093||Posted by: Wm. Turnbull on 2005-06-10 12:53:03.38|
The 4093 has arrived in Tamaqua, it sits on a spur in front of the old tamaqua station (rdg). The move took place in the spring of 2005. The restoration included reworking of journals and couplings to be able to make the trip being pulled from Jim Thorpe to Tamaqua.

|Dry Gulch RR 4-4-0 No. 4 "Janelle"||Posted by: Jay on 2005-06-08 08:38:51.257|
The park's website says that Skooter was added in 1990 to run with Janelle not the other way around. Oh and the fuel should be propane.
|Chiriqui Land Co. 2-6-0 No. 46||Posted by: Chris on 2005-06-07 20:37:09.0|
The last few months have been spent machining new parts for the front(pony) truck of the #46. After thorough inspection, most parts for the lead truck were deemed too worn out and mismatched to use, so new parts have been machined in house. This includes new pins (upper and lower), roller wheels for pins, and swing links. The springs have also been cleaned and mag-particle tested, and washers and other small parts replaced or remachined. The entire setup is complete and ready to be re-assembled. New fitted bolts for steam saddle have been machined and installed to replace the badly worn out bolts there. As always, constant little are jobs ongoing, and progress is at a steady pace. -Chris

The P3 is set to move to the Shildon 'Locomotion' museum where it will undertake light duties only. This is because of a crack in the cylinder block. As the loco is nearing the end of its boiler ticket, it will probably be attended to during its next overhaul.

|Union Pacific RR 4-8-8-4 No. 4005||Posted by: Jim Reisdorff on 2005-06-07 10:30:49.27|
The 4005 was badly wrecked, with a couple of the crew
members killed, in an accident on Sherman Hill on April 27,
1953. The Forney Museum held a commemoration of the
incident on the 50th anniversary of it in 2003. Family of the
crew were there, as well as two engineers who had
operated the 4005. A model company has also produced a
very detailed and very expensive model of the 4005.

Riva's new water tanks are installed and it looks like she may run this weekend, but if not the weekend after. Also, the air tanks and injectors have been moved below the running boards, so for the first time in its years at the zoo, it will not have all that extra stuff on top of the boiler.
