Tennessee Coal, Iron & Railroad Co. 2-4-0 No. 110Posted by: Evan on 2007-03-13 19:01:11.323
I believe that Michael is right.  You do have a listed locomotive of a 2-4-0 wheel arangement at Cedar Point.  It has an unknown construction number but everything else is the same except for the driver diameter and builder.  Is it posible that you may have faulty info on one of the engines?

Southern Railway 2-8-0 No. 722Posted by: adam on 2007-03-13 11:18:53.34
just spoke to gsmrr director and 1702 will be in operation spring of 08 and 722 will be in operation late 09. those double headers will happen soon. he also told me that gsmrr will be an all steam railway in 2010 if all goes well.

Chesapeake & Ohio RR 2-8-4 No. 2716Posted by: Andrew Durden on 2007-03-13 09:16:34.343

Because Bill Purdie knows what steam engines are SUPPOSED to look like.  The Good Lord intended for headlights to be placed in the center of the smokebox, not underneath it.

In all seriousness, the locomotive was restored to be operated on the Southern Railway, and the low headlight and illuminated number boards just didn't look like something the Southern Railway would have had.  When the Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society returned 2716 to service in 1996, it was returned to its C&O appearance.  It retains that appearance today at KRM.

Spokane, Portland & Seattle Ry 2-8-2 No. 539Posted by: C Stark on 2007-03-11 19:17:35.893

Lautoka Mill 0-6-0 No. 11 'Fiji'Posted by: Dave Haring on 2007-03-10 11:04:56.063
I believe this is the same locomotive I saw when I was in Fiji back in 2005. It's a neat little Hudswell Clarke 0-6-0 with a tender, but has recently been outfitted with a diesel engine drive in the tender for tourist service.

Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad 2-8-4 No. 2760Posted by: martin on 2007-03-09 18:46:21.19
Work is still being done. So far 2760 and the tender have been sandblasted,primerd,and painted. The curent project is restore the caboose.

Norfolk & Western Railway 4-8-0 No. 433Posted by: martin on 2007-03-09 18:43:04.877
#433 is in pretty good shape. The headlamp is not its original since it was destroyed by vandals. #433 didn't work as a regular on the Virginia Creeper but as a backup. The regular runners were all scrapped.

Panama Railroad 2-6-0 No. 299Posted by: Brian Riley on 2007-03-08 21:58:08.487
Unfortunately, the 229's sister engine the 201 hasn't operated since 2001. She was red-tagged because she is in need of a major overhaul. Both engines were lucky to have been sent back to the U.S. Most steam locomotives the built the canal ended up being pushed off the back of barges into the ocean.

I was last @ IRM in September 2007; the smokebox door was being painted in the shops. Just out of curiosity, with whom and for what would we trade it for?

St. Louis - San Francisco (Frisco) Railroad 2-8-2 No. 1352Posted by: Ken Sullivan on 2007-03-06 16:23:24.957
I worked on this engine for 18mos. before the money ran out,a lack of local interest and no name association played a big part here. Ned Feirsten and myself literally spun off our last stay bolt cap when the last of the gas acetylene ran out. We put away the torches and that was that. The boiler and running gear are all in good shape,and we'd love to get the project going again some day.

I think the engineers of the southern pacific would yell if they saw this paint scheme. ugh.
