Word on the streets is that its in very good mechanical shape. Might be wrong. New front? As in headlight, etc? When will it be repainted? It was primed when I was last at IRM.

This locomotive was donated in 1955 to Oklahoma for display on the grounds of Enid State School, a center for handicapped children. I grew up in Enid and remember seeing it on display.  Around 1990 it had fallen into great disrepair and was donated and/or sold to the Ft. Worth & Western in Texas.  In 1995 it was purchased by Illinois Railway Museum who will hopefully restore it either to operational or even cosmetic standards. It is one of three CRI&P Pacifics in existence and I'm pretty sure the only three donated RI steam locos still standing.
