The HH12-44 is an Ex B&O unit. that's what the BOMX is. B&O musuem equipment. It looks like they repainted the 236. she was in the fireball scheme.

the 4-4-0 was used in one of the wild west movies (i forgot the name  ) i think it had Will Smith in it... I dont have any pics tho maybe of the 4-4-0 ill have to look through my pics which are on my other pc,I think it was in the roundhouse our last vist.All there engines run on the line the muesum has really small line sadly only about a mile    .as for when the run id call the muesum to ask,I know they normally run diesel on there excursions and when there done with there new shop the excersions will be dropping people off at the shop for tours!

I think that movie was the Wild Wild West and I think it was filmed in Strasburg  Is the mile-long excursion the only track they have or is there more track that they just can't go on?

yeah thats the one!
i think they only have the mile they have a CSX interchange connected tho theres quite a few sidings with old stuff on them such as hoppers boxcars etc theres also a old F unit out there (lol) im auctally not really sure if they have more than a mile as they only used 1 out of 2 coaches for our ride and was hard to look ahead...they have quite a collection restored and unrestored.the guy on the train said it was the 1st mile of B&O track they ran on. i think a mile is to short though..

Yeah a train ride is not too fun if its short  One way a ride has to be AT LEAST 15 minutes for a desent trip that acctually goes someplace.  If the B&O had tracks that at least went 4-5 miles it would be my favorite place.  They got the museum and the equipment, its just the equipment does'nt operate or go anyplace.

Strasburg did do work on the engine to make it operational for the movie, but I don't think any filming was done on their property.  The 0-4-0T ("Little Lizzie" #4 from St. Elizabeth Hospital) got some damage when the roof caved in.  I think it was mostly contained to the cab area, and it is not running right now.  You can call or check their web site for steam operations.

The web site doesn't say a thing but I'll have to call.   Don't think I'll see any steam ops but its worth a phonecall.   Thanks

Hi all-  
 
         During my last visit, (January) the excursions were run over a few miles of track using 3 MARC coaches. Power was provided by SW1200 No. 1200, marked simply "BORRMX", and painted in a sharp looking red and white.
 
        Though not long, the train ride is a neat one, partly because you pass many interesting things, such as the site of the museums new restoration facility, and museum equipment including an E8, and party because it is some of the first railroad ever built in the U.S.A.
 
    Also, it wouldn't really be possible to add onto the ride, because they operate already up as far as they can go.
                                                                Cy
