Illinois Central RR 2-8-0 No. 790Posted by: Ray Sebetka on 2007-08-13 13:32:32.14
In the summer of 1960 Lou Keller with the help of some friends and about a half dozen kids (myself included) in the neighborhood next to Quaker Oats of Cedar Rapids assisted in the restoration of this wonderful old locomotive. After it was completed it was taken on an historic run to Ottumwa Iowa and back. On board for the trip were all those who assisted Lou along with the grandson of Casey Jones no less and reporters from the Cedar Rapids Gazette as well as a reporter and photo journalist from Look Magazine. It was a day I will always remember. Along the way a train robbery was enacted shortly before we reached Ottomwa . A large strong box (old foot locker) filled with money (monopoly I'm sure) end gold bars (Gold painted 2x4's) was taken by the bandits as they mounted their horses and rode away into the sunset.It was quite a thrill for a 12 year old kid from the wrong side of the tracks, but thats the kind of guy Louis Keller was! Thanks Lou

Standard Mining Co. 0-4-0T No. 1Posted by: Diz Schimke on 2007-08-10 09:45:55.517
This loco started its career for the Standard Mining Co. of Wallace,Idaho. The loco was originally air-compressed, to run underground in the silver mines. It was ordered in Sept. and delivered in Dec. 1896. The Standard sometime around 1916 called it quits. The Hecla Mining Co. acquired the loco sometime after that, and ran it underground till 1935.Major work was done this year in the Hecla shops to covert the air tank to a firetube boiler. The gauge was also changed from 18 to 24 inch. They had made a sidetanker out of it. It was used to shunt materials around on the surface. Sometime after 1935 (don't know when, I'm still digging) the Sullivan Mining Co. acquired the loco from the Hecla. They ran the loco till the summer of 1950. In July 1951, Bert F. Rudolph had written his first letter to Harry Graff Jr. of Sullivan Mining Co. about acquring one of the locomotives to be scraped.By Oct., Bert had paid his $200.00 for it. In the spring of 1952 it was trucked to his place and stored in a garage and never running it. Bert passed in 1992 and his good friend John Bradley acquired the loco from his wife.

M.A. Patout & Son 0-4-0T No. 4Posted by: Steve on 2007-08-08 16:08:49.75
This photo is not the locomotive described in the specification / description. HK Porter C/N 6458 is a locomotive located in Patoutville LA, owned by M A Patout & Son. However, I believe the photo to be a pre-restoration photo of Patout #4 "Ida P", which is another Patout locomotive. HK Porter C/N 6458 is M A Patout "Bessie" an 0-4-4RT, rear-tank forney locomotive, with no tender, and no saddle-tank, and is not "#4". This photo needs to be deleted, or replaced with updated photo, if available. All information appears to be accurate except the photo.

M.A. Patout & Son 0-4-0T No. 4Posted by: Steve on 2007-08-08 15:50:07.487
This is M A Patout & Son #4, "Ida P". She is a 0-4-0T Saddle-Tank locomotive, with a 2-axle, 4-wheel tender.

Comal Power Plant 0-4-0T No. 1Posted by: Brian Riley on 2007-08-06 12:43:24.887
This locomotive is almost operational. They will have it operating by this fall. I went to the little museum that owns this locomotive. They don't even have a mile of trackage right now. I think somebody needs to go out there and help them set up the rest of the track. I can't because I live 200 miles away from there.

LNER (design) 4-6-2 No. 60163 'Tornado'Posted by: Steve Frost on 2007-08-05 16:50:19.183
August 2008. The boiler has now been mounted on the rolling chassis and it looks more like a complete loco. Still needs finance to complete a job that many thought was impossible when the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust started. For more details and if you want to help, go to the website shown in the 'links' section.

Great Western Railway Railcar No. 93Posted by: Steve Frost on 2007-08-04 11:47:31.12
Steam railcars were an attempt to run branch line passenger services economically, and various railways tried the concept out, often with little success. The GWR built No93 in 1908 and used it as built up to 1934. At that point the power unit was removed and scrapped, and the body of the railcar was coverted into an auto trailer for use with push-pull equipped locomotives (Numbered 212). In the late 1950's it was stripped and used in departmental service until it was bought for preservation in 1966. In the meantime, The Great Western Society at Didcot had aquired a trailer coach of 1912, No 92. These were cars towed by the railcars to give increased seating. In 1998, the Society decided to build a replacement power unit to return No 93 to its original condition, no mean feat, but one which is progressing with a target date for steaming of 2010. The boiler and many parts of the running gear, cylinders and motion have been produced. The body is being restored and a remarkable discovery was some appropriate seats in Australia in two condemned tramway cars! However, there is still much to be done and £100000 is still needed to complete the work. See for details.
