MAV 2-6-2T No. 376.531 (376.461)Posted by: Steve Frost on {ts '2019-06-25 16:36:51'}
Extract from a Hungarian preserved loco site:

It was exhibited in the yard of the Ács Ácssi Sugar Factory. The factory originally asked for its own 376.531 locomotive in return for its 27th BHEV locomotive. Since the original 531 has in the meantime been repaired cosmetically and has been displayed, the History Committee has taken the 461 machine and presented it as 531. - The locomotive originally wore 376,461 number and operated in Nagymányi and then in Bátaszék until 1989.


MAV 2-6-2T No. 376.450Posted by: Steve Frost on {ts '2019-06-25 16:20:10'}
Is this the loco that was reported abandoned at the former MAV Institute at Repcesztgyorg? Some reports suggest the loco is a class 375, yet my information is that this is it, in Andor Street, Budapest. Any information about this would be welcome.

Grand Trunk Western 0-8-0 No. 8310Posted by: Tim Fennell on {ts '2019-06-24 20:15:33'}
GTW #8310 was a class P-5-b built by Alco June 1924 (serial number 65628, order S-1475). After retirement it was sent as scrap to Northwestern Steel & Wire in Sterling, IL. This group of 0-8-0 locomotives was in better shape than the mill’s ex-CB&Q 0-6-0s and became their primary switchers. However, ex GTW 8310 and 8314 never ran at the mill and were only used for parts. The locomotive numbered 10 by NWS&W was in fact former GTW 8327. When these locomotives donated to the Illinois Railway Museum in the early 80s, it came with the stipulation of a time constraint for removal from the property. Because 8310 had been a parts unit it was in no condition to be moved. The decision was made to save usable parts and scrap the rest. There is a picture of it being cut up in Rail & Wire (IRM’s magazine) issue 105 from March 1982. That is not the end of 8310. As of 2019, the cab and some of boiler are still stored on museum property in Union. Potentially to be made into an attractive display.
