This Locomotive, 1286, If I am not mistaken, was also used in the Movie"Assault At West Point" 1994. I am glad someone mentioned the fact that 1286 was in the Movie "The Love Letter"

This locomotive was in the movie, "The Love Letter" in 1998. Looking very nice as she pulls into the station.

The gentleman who owned the 1238 & 1286 was originally George Hart, but later in the 1970's the engines ran on the ex-C&O Hot Springs Branch for Jack Showalter.

Does anyone know if the engines can be restored to operation?

These two locomotives I believe belong to a guy named showalter, they were for sale on barnhardts site some time ago, whole set, cars locos, service and support gear for about 2 million... last I heard they haven't sold yet.
