I am a volunteer on this railroad, and will probably be one of the chief laborers in the restoration. From what we can tell, this engine is in rough shape. It was heavily neglected by the boys at Sturm & Dillard in her last days of working for them. We have determined that 3 of 4 corners in the firebox are bad, and there is some serious damage to the mud-ring. (They did a sloppy welding job on it.)The bottom section of the firebox on the right side will have to be replaced, and we have not gotten into the boiler yet to see how the shell is.

We have started a group to try and keep the locomotive in Circleville.

Regarding the previous note, Pickaway County is looking for 106 a new owner.

The Baltimore County Chapter of the NRHS just posted on Facebook that they literally are looking for a new owner for 106 for free.

The Pickaway County Fairgrounds is offering the locomotive for free to anyone interested. The locomotive is not in the plans for the future of the fairgrounds, and they would like to see it gone by 2018.

The locomotive has been displayed in a fenced in area on the south side of U.S. 22, east of downtown Circleville at the Fairgrounds. It has been there at least since 1991 when I took photos there.
