Currently outside of Barn 9 as the locomotive was used for the 2010 IRM Calendar photo. It now wears the CB&Q mars light and bell.

they're either repainting the herald on the tender or there is tape there for no reason.

There are no intentions to restore 3007 in the near feature. True it has a good boiler but it is much too large and powerful for our needs.

Yes, 3007 has a good boiler, and still has its boiler jacket. But the museum removed most of the running gear for its trip to the union. The running gear has not been reinstalled. Once at union, a new headlight was installed and the loco was transferred to barn 9, where it remains today. Since UP 428, J. Neils 5, and Frisco 1630 will be out of the shop soon, hopefully the 3007 can be moved in and restoration can begin.

3007 has a good boiler and might be considered for restoration.

Corrected database to reflect this locomotive's move to the Illinois Railroad Museum in Union, IL. Will update ownership history, and remove this note as soon as possible.
