When I first put this site on line on September 1, 2002 I would never have dreamed we'd get this far. In any case, thanks for visiting and I hope you're still around when we get...

Re: Locomotive Statuses

We listed SER 4-6-2 No. 676 as a "Boiler explosion victim" on the SE Railway Bankura-Rainagar Line. This was the only locomotive in our database carrying this status. An email from an Indian steam enthusiast, Shankar S. indicates the remains of this locomotive were scrapped in 2003. So, we...
