Actualy Greg, The 3rd cylinder is hooked to the second axle from the front. The middle cylinder has an incline to it to allow that to happen.

What the hell are you talking about moonshine? The 9000 is kept in good condition, and besides if it was restored there would be no where to run it.

These "Union Pacific" type locomotives have 3 cylinders, the other being in the middle under the smokestack and driving a crank in the center of the main axle (please correct me if I'm wrong on this.) A total of 88 were built having a 30' 8" (driver only) wheelbase. No tight curves for this one!

The ONLY reson she lives today is she was used ina  old steam movie called Age Of Steam and osme other movies. but there used to be alot roaming small villages of Nebraska to big cities in Colorado. she was the largest non articulated built expt wiht the exeption of Russias 4-14-4 which derailed ( derails ) alot :)

she is the last of her class in the world. she needs more the a cosmetic restoaration she wil never last. she NEEDS to be under steam. or else the income will be ZERO and if that happens how will they preserve her? she needs to pull trains to get income to pay for herself to LIVE!
