War Department 0-6-0ST No. 75142 68012 Posted by: Josh Lovegrove on 2005-11-18 04:46:45.363
The locomotive is now non-operational requiring major boiler and firebox work. It was last steamed in 2004 but withdrawn from traffic on the discovery of a crack in the water jacket. On further investigation of this fault it was discovered that the metal in some parts of the firebox was wasted to such a degree that simple repair not possible. The engine now awaits funds for a complete boiler rebuild which is the only ecconomic repair posible.

Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific RR 4-6-0 No. 1004Posted by: Mike Torreson on 2005-11-17 21:30:31.987

This locomotive is now housed in a steel building for protection from the elements, but unfortunately, the building is just large enough to enclose the engine, and is not possible to view it.  It is located at the Mower County Fairgrounds.   in the 1970's it was in the open and was in poor condition.  Now it is covered, but not in public veiw.  11/18/05 

Chicago & North Western RR 0-4-0T No. 100Posted by: Mike Torreson on 2005-11-17 21:09:33.387

  I bought this locomotive from Heckman in the mid 1990's and stored it at my farm near Wallingford, Iowa for a year or so.  I sold it to Peter Barney for use on the Edaville RR at South Carver, Mass.   It was stored at Pascoag, RI awaiting overhaul and conversion to a 2-4-4.   Mr. Barneys attempt at reviving Edaville failed ( the Edaville Curse ! ). It is supposed to go to Rome ,New York for use on the two Foot RR along the Erie Canal, but not sure when.  11/18/05

Given the overall condition of this locomotive, judge by the photo, just wondering if this locomotive might be available for reassignment to another tax exempt RR historical group ?

Dinorwic Slate Quarry 0-4-0ST No. 1 'Elidir'Posted by: Christopher Creighton on 2005-10-22 20:53:10.543


I don't know if I am speaking of the same ELIDIR, but I have seen a 60cm gauge quarry locomotive by that name. It is located at Tottenham, Ontario, Canada stored under cover at the farm of an acquaintance. From what I have been told, it was brought to Canada from Wales in the early 1960's along with her sister (the name of which escapes me at the moment). The sister engine was sliced in half and is on display at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto.

New South Wales Government Railways 4-4-2T No. 1307Posted by: Steve Frost on 2005-10-17 17:13:45.967
Spot the Beyer Peacock design! Here's another of this Manchester firm's locos with all the trademarks - the short wheelbase bogie at the front, the inclined outside cylinders, the elegant chimney. If you look at some of the other places on the site you'll see the same genetic link in locos in Spain, the Isle of Man, and the London Underground. The things were all over, as both tank and tender locos. Wheel arrangements vary - 4-4-0, 2-4-0, 4-6-0, and 4-4-2 as you see here. Good to see another of the old firm's products is still around.

Canadian Pacific Railway 4-6-0 No. 1057Posted by: Ben Barton on 2005-10-10 10:04:23.22
1057 is in excellent working order. The railroad's other locomotive, 136, needs boiler work and is currently not being used. There are good photo ops of 1057 in the station, but none on the line as there are no curves. The locomotive is not visible from the train at any time. You can, however, park at one of the crossings north of the station and take photos.
