#20 ran a few weeks ago at the CRRM.

Nothing like steam in cold weather. Thanks for posting that.

As one who despises every miserable split second of winter and can not breathe when it is cold I hope I never see 20 in the snow. If I see it I hope it would be July or August. This is a nice little engine that have been given a lot of new life compared to the completely used up one it was. In the first scene of the video, what are the big disc drivers behind the 20 attached to? I suspect 20 would fit inside that one.

John, I am not sure but they have a Q northern but it use to be on the other side of the grounds. Maybe they moved it.

I found a picture of one of those 4-8-4s and the details seem to match including the compressor hanging over the number 4 driver. I did not know they had that engine. I thought this was a land locked museum. If so it must have been fun getting that one in.

Thanks.

i believe early on they had a spur but the bridge over a canal or something was removed and that land locked it. So maybe the Q engine was placed early enough it wasnt that bad.
