Thanks, And to get to the crossing its a short walk, Leave the museum, take a left, go maybe 4 blocks, Then theres a parking lot with a brick area that looks like a turn table, go down there and keep walking till the crossing. It took us about 5 minutes with a really brisk pace.  
 
Yeah, A shame about what the guy said about the GG1, There are a few restored to static displey...  
 
Im going to start posting some more pics soon, Some tonight and the rest tomorrow.

Check out reply #195 on the B&O RR Museum, I submitted a photo of 2101 that I took I think in 1995. She just unfortunately looks worse! :'

Nice shots, BC&A!  I must have been shooting right next to you on those action views of #4, and you caught my son's backside sticking out of the cab on most of them.  He had rebuilt the engine (twice) and was sweating through its successful operation.

Great shots BC&A ! #4 seems like a neat little loco. Is she related to WK&S's #2? They look kinda similar.

I called the museum yesterday and spoke to two very nice women. I gave them some ideas that I thought the museum could improve on such as running steam more often, and running 6405(SD-9) on the excursion train.
 
As for steam, as much as the museum would love to run #4 or any of the other engines more often is the fact that it is so darn expensive. Another reason is I would guess because of how populated the area around the museum is, is the fact that each time they run steam, they need to be aproved by the fire department. My guess is because of the possiblity of those who may call the Fire dept. to reporta fire, while the museum has a steamer fired up. I gave them a suggestion of maybe one weekend out of each month during the summer fire up #4 and run her on the regular train. They said not only would it cost a lot of cash but the planning the museum has to do when steam is run, this brings back the fire dept.
 
 
 
As for 6405 pulling the train, 1200 is an ex. Reading and Northern engine I think. This is a Baltimore and Ohio railroad museum and they are running of former Baltimore and Ohio tracks. Lets show some B&O pride and run a B&O engine on an excursion over B&O tracks.
 
Hey, I tried. Lets hope something happens.
 
 
Matt

 
 
Good ideas Matt. Thanks for calling. What did they tell you?

Nice Video finds.  That's me on the Lafayette and I posted the one on youtube.  At any rate I don't think I'd get into too much trouble by saying that barring any unforseen problems myself and one of the other guys will be bringing the Mason up to steam for steam days.
