I am a regular visitor to the museum and always wondered what condition the #16 (4-4-0) was in. From external appearances it looks to be in good to excellent shape. Is it a future canidiate for restoration?
First objective is to get some steam running and therefore the focus is on 1630 as we have a pretty clear understanding of what is required.
Later - options ?. There is certainly interest in #16 as it is pretty complete but it is one heck of a long time since it last ran so it is a bit of a journey into the unknown.
