Mr. Ed Kelly is wrong.

I rode behind no. 15 last weekend (Sep. 10).  She is alive and well!!

According the the Sugar Pine's Master Mechanic, "YMSPRR Fan" is correct.  #15 has not been out of service.  As said correctly by "YMSPRR Fan", the engine runs in the early and late months of thier season.  The Master mechanic says that the loco has been in continuous service for over 10 years.

The 15 *has* been out of service. I understand management is looking into what work needs to be done to get her running again, at which point the decision may be made to go through with it.

Currently, the 15 is not out of service.  As it is the smaller of the Sugar Pine's two shays (#15 is 59 tons, #10 is 83 tons), it generally only sees service in the early and late months of the operating season, when passenger ridership is lower.
