3025 in the SUN!


3025 was out of the shop for a few minutes this afternoon. The tender was filled with coal and some firewood was put on board. We are getting ready to fire it up for the first time since it was re-assembled. A myriad of small tasks remain to be done before it will run, but it is getting close. Stay tuned...

A comment from within - the Track Department is proud to have this fine machine graces it's rails! Having watched this project from it's inception, I have no doubt this is the finest conditioned locomotive in the country. Hats off to the entire Engine House crew on this incredible achievement.

This looks beautiful...I'm a little embarrassed to ask this but is it an original NH engine?

No she is not, shes a chineese SY 2-8-2 Mikado built in the 80's. No New Haven steamer ever survived the cutting torch

Will she be out of the shop on a regular basis before she starts running for the season? My son would love to take some pictures of her for his collection...
