Big news! The Mad River and NKP Museum in Bellevue has reached an agreement with RRMPA to bring 757 home. A campaign to raise $250K for moving and cosmetic restoration has been set.

Make that October, 2010 for the move from the yard by the turntable to the front of the Museum!

In October of 2011, this engine was moved from the side yard by the turntable to display in front of the Museum (not visible from the street, but instead, only by the driveway in front of the Museum). The main rod had to be disconnected as the wrist pin was discovered during the move to have ceased. As of March, 2015, the main rod has yet to be reattached and sits one end laying on the ground.

Having visited the museum yesterday i can say that while this engine could use a few paint touch ups, the running gear is most certainly intact, as are almost all other external parts.

This engine is Berkshire(2-8-4) it runs at around 200-210 psi. While this enigne is very well know currently it is in awful condition. The running gear is gone, there is moss growing on it,a and birds nesting in it. This needs to be restored.
