when i went sunday january 9th 2005,william mason was in the roundhouseon Jan 6th, 2005, 6:08pm, Teen_NS_fan wrote:       (Click here for original message)
Thanks for the info Mike. In that case, the William Mason wasnt in the roundhouse when I went on Sunday, because I would have noticed, she's a pretty famous locomotive you know. BTW, the locomotives that were damaged were terrible, with the boiler jacket ruined on one, and another, I think the 117, a ten-wheeler, had the cab bashed in pretty badly.    
 
            I dont know if this was the GP-7 that was in chessie paint. I kinda wish they'da put on a fresh coat of the chessie but the B&O paint looks just as good.

Hey John - Can you give a general location? She might not have been there when I went, since it was the last day of the holiday model train show, and nearly a quarter of the roundhouse was taken up by a huge 0-scale layout. I might have overlooked her though...

I went to the B&O RR Museum in Nov. of '02. I rode behind SEH #4 their steamer. She's a beautiful tanker, but I remember their route is pretty run down. The train passed nothing but urbanization and industrial buildings. It's a shame how nothing looks nostalgiac anymore, especially along the first 3 miles of the B&O. The cars we rode in were 3 flatcars with benches and clear tarps over the sides for the winter. It was the last weekend in Nov. and was bitterly cold. Apparently the #4 doesn't have a large coal capacity because in between each train they would have to dump buckets of coal on the cab floor. Sorry, no pics!

    We rode in MARC coaches that you can see in the pics that I posted before. Those flatcars would have been good back in '02 to hear that steamer though!
 
   Now the museum is building it's restoration shop where the Mt. Clare erecting shops were, called " russia " by B&O engine crews because you had to go so far from the car shops and roundhouse to get there. You pass this during the ride. I noticed an E8 sitting on a siding with some equipment that's not really accessbile  other than seeing it during the train ride.

Would be nice to see the #377 back in operation again. This loco operated on a tourist road in the late 1970's, early 80's I believe? I had a pic of it somewhere under steam....will have to look around for it.

NHIWW,
 
I assume this is the 377 you mentioned (C & O ten-wheeler).   If so, this is what it's been up to recently.  Hopefully you can find the pic of it under steam - love to see it workin!

 Yeah, the backwards 3/4 angle of her I posted on the previous page was the best angle I could get, I think I remember that there was some obstruction like a fence or something that prevented me from getting that shot that you posted coal cracker.
 
      NHIWW - Hope you find that shot, I wanna see it!

I shoulda read the rest of the thread....looks like they shuffled her around in the aftermath of the roof collapse. I think my pic was from summer '02.  I do hope they find a more favorable location for her.  Sharp looking little engine.  It's a shame she's coupled to the big hook!

   Yeah I know.   She's coupled to the C&O Allegheny on the other end.
 
    The museums next big restoration project ( after they repair all damage caused by the collapse ) should be to give 377 a nice cosmetic restoration and put her in the roundhouse.

I seem to recall it operated in Virginia?....not too sure though...
 
Will start searching

Okay, so I was a little off in my location of the 377's operation....  
 
It was on the Toledo, Lake Erie & Western Tourist Railroad, which is still alive and well.
 
Heres the link to their web sight which includes pics of the #377 in operation on a short line that no longer exists in name or trackage. The TLE&W operated on this line for a while.  
 
http://www.tlew.org  
 
Go to "photos" page a look under "early steam operations" where you will see their 0-6-0 in operation as well as the 377  
 
The 377 was leased from the B&O/C&O for 5 years and rebuilt for operation. Used on several excursions in the Toledo Ohio area as well as on their line.

I went several weeks ago and am glad I did. Unfortunately, the excursion train broke down before I got there on it's first run of the day
