Re: Very Interesting Steam Loco Story Trains Mag

John, you are thinking of #8 that was left to rot. #9 was sent to Connecticut.

Re: Chinese QJ's on the march this week end

Here is what i found from my Iowa sources.

"Some information about the IAIS train ride on Saturday:
* Train departs Mitchellville at 8:45 am to Newton
* I do not know when this train returns to Mitchellville
* Another train departs from Mitchellville (I think) around 12:45 pm"

Re: The 60000 4-10-2 MOVES?

One other distinction is u can be in the cab of 227 while the wheels move. Thet play a video of a Yellowstone running on the DM&IR and blowing a whistle. Kind of puts you in a working cab!

The Yellowstone 227 in Duluth doesn't move, the wheels turn.

Como Colorado

On my way home, i stayed a day to help at Como. I helped get track 6 down to access that stall of the round house. In stall 5 is #4, Klondike Kate with her nose open.

New track in Ridgway Colorado

I went out to the work week that was held the first week of June and helped put down some rail on the new 1/2 mile loop that the Museum is building. We ended up at about 1200 feet of 75 lb rail. It will give Goose 1 a place to shed her feathers!

Re: PTC - What Happens with Mainline Steam?

Interesting question. I dont know either but can speculate a few ideas. One is the diesel will control the train so will be there. Hopefully not in the lead and second, add it to the steam engine.
