Raffi about Remembering the Rock Island Part 2 and a Idea
Thu, 12-18-2014 14:13
i think one way to support the 938 restoration is to sell KCS tender 759 to the highest bidder, or do you have other plans?


Nigel Bennett about Long delayed update
Thu, 12-18-2014 10:33
Certainly a challenge but not really a like for like comparison. The larger UK preserved railways are what the name implies - operating railways, [...]

Interesting enough, it appears the SW1 4804 seen in the photo of the engineer climbing into the CRIP 630 survives today as NIRC 2. Still running on [...]


Michael Bennett about Long delayed update
Wed, 12-17-2014 03:30
Certainly the 4 or 5 engine problem is something a lot of the railways in the UK have to deal with. We are very fortunate that the money available [...]

Joshua, Per Nigel Bennett regarding 938 on 12/8/14, "#938 was brought in for some cosmetic work". He has expressed in the past that restoring 938 [...]

Hello Josh Yes, you were right! I wouldn't call it a restoration but an inspection. It was in the shop for about two months while tubes were [...]

I was right! That RI pacific was in steam shops for restoration!

Hello Raffi If you would like to have the ex-CNW 4160 repainted into the RI colors, please figure on about $35k to repaint it. Did you ever see [...]

speaking of which, CNW 4160 should be painted into its original build number, 1266. so, in case 938 does operate, 938 can be at one end and 1266 can [...]


Roger Kramer about September 27-28-29 Passenger Car Department Update
Wed, 12-10-2014 21:54
There is some new information concerning the Silver Beaver. What it needs is for its track charges to be paid. To make a donation the fund name is, [...]


Matt Maloy about Believe It
Wed, 12-10-2014 09:19
Guys, I'm not entirely sure if that's true or not. If found this photo, it was taken in 2014, so it's probably still [...]
