1187 is owned by Strasburg RR. It is undergoing (a slow) restoration to operational status. SRR considers this a "fair weather" project.

1187 should get shop time this year. Then we should know whether it will be restored for operation.

As of now this locomotive hasn't felt steam in her boiler in almost 34 years.  Lets hope she still remembers what its like.
