Consolidated Mines Co. 0-4-0T No. 35Posted by: Eric Sitiko on 2005-06-26 11:01:23.737
This porter ran in Lincoln Neraska as a steam dummy. When brought to AZ cab was shortened to resemble a standard locomotive. Details still that of a steam dummy. Best example, sliding door at cab rear, curved bumper rear, and wood trim over steam dome has arch for doorway, when that wall used to be in front of smoke box. Loco operated in ~'85 for a Prescott rail event, that was reason for cab being restored/ rebuilt. could be made operational, just time and money (and that lap seam boiler)

Bridgton & Saco River RR 2-4-4T No. 8Posted by: Eric on 2005-06-25 21:47:23.013
Bridgton & Harrison #8 was built in 1924 for the Bridgton & Saco River Railroad. She was the last two foot gauge steam locomotive built for American use. The B&H closed in 1941 and the #8 was saved by Ellis D. Atwood of South Carver Mass. for use on his Edaville railroad. #7 operated for the same railroad.

Texas & Pacific RR 4-6-0 No. 316Posted by: LT Brandon H. McElroy on 2005-06-25 04:17:39.167
201 has just been refitted with a brand new boiler as of the summer of 2004.  As she is the Texas State Railroad's smallest locomotive, she cannot pull a full consist of passenger cars over the steep grades of East Texas.  Primarily she has been used as a "film locomotive" for various movies, in that 201 is also the oldest locomotive in the park after her sister engine #200, was traded to the Tarantula R.R. in Ft. Worth in the late 1980s.

Romanian State Railroads 0-6-2T No. 395-104Posted by: Chris Little on 2005-06-19 22:29:37.803

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.

Fiji Island Sugar 0-6-0T No. 21Posted by: scott on 2005-06-18 10:55:40.837

Condon, Kinzua & Southern RR Heisler - 3 truck No. 91Posted 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. 45011Posted 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.

Phenix Marble Heisler - 2 truck No. 1Posted by: matt on 2005-06-16 12:43:10.627

General Mining Association 0-6-0 No. NonePosted by: Ian on 2005-06-16 08:06:47.66
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."

Southern Pacific RR 4-8-4 No. 4460Posted by: Andrew Foley on 2005-06-16 02:04:41.097

New South Wales Government Railways 0-6-0ST No. 20NPosted 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 2271Posted 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. 4093Posted 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.
