Better yet for steam days if it is but together bring up 844, nkp 765, and 261 in addition to the other locs you listed above

i have a question involving MILW 96B, it said it was a "Rotary Power Car". was it referring to the fact that it used a Wankel engine? or is it a [...]

i have thought about the tender for 938. this is just a theoretical guess. when the CRIP was refurbishing 938 for the end of steam, the 930 might have [...]

Mark- What I can tell you is that we believe it will be going into the next barn which is very welcome news after sitting outside since about 1987 [...]

Shane, Clean rain water is certainly possible. The snag is that you would need a BIG collection and storage system. We are using around 8000 [...]
