This engine is now in the shops at steamtown and if all goes well with the paperwork it will soon be undergoing full cosmetic restoration. This work was started some years ago but never completed and some ofthe work was poorly done. The right front driver box is not original and is cracked along with the wooden "crown brass". Thats why it seems to dip forward...because it is. I may set up a facebook page for the restoration.

Here's the National Park Service assessment of this little locomotive:

The engine has a number of in-service replacements, indicating hard use by the Bullard Company. The front breast beam and coupler are replacements, the saddletank is a probable replacement. Bullard #2 exhibits some areas of degradation that are common railroad equipment exposed to the elements, but the engine is in good condition.

It is no longer lettered for its historic owner. The whistle and bell are missing; the builder's plates are in storage. The cab sash has deteriorated and the glazing is missing. Some injectors, gauges, and lubricators are missing from the cabs however, many valve handles and "jewelry remain. The left side running board is rotten. Both cut levers are missing.
