Yep. IF there were ever to be incentive or funding to put one of the larger items of the steam collection into operation, my personal favorite would [...]

yes, i remember one of the guys in the steam shop telling me that the size of 1630's wheels make it difficult to navigate the modern railway. but if [...]

John, We are not intending to repaint the tender end and sides. No #1630 does not carry cab signaling. (She left Frisco service long before it [...]
