Hi All,
 
Nice to know that at least one of the LIRR/ PRR G-5s's are in an advanced stage of restoration. It is also nice to know that there are others, besides the fellas at Oyster Bay, interested in a RR museum on the Island. Please keep us informed of their progress and their situation. The fellas in Oyster Bay are making progress, slowly, but they are making progress.

Matt- I will be more than happy to get pics of that I plan to take at lesat 50 pics and I'm going to the L.I. live steamers next mouth. No. 35 is being restored in Oyster Bay where in 2008 a brand new museum is planed to be built with a operating turntable . I was just talking to my mom about the restoration and I said if Strasburg did it it would be done. I'm also thinking about joining the restoration crew I just have to ask my dad ,so if I do join I'll get us informed..........Boy I can't wait for them to finish I'd be their every weekend

I was browsing around railswap and found this...
I find it interesting, I have a feeling one of the larger railroads like the A&M will do it, But there are ton's of railroads that can.

Hi Anthony,
 
Great pics and thanks for the update. I am one of the "Friends of # 35" and it is my understanding that # 39 will be back on the rails before # 35 makes it. Either way it should be interesting, especially when and if they are eventually double headed on an excursion trip.

The RR festival is in a few weeks! Anyone plan on Going? I’ll be there on the Saturday  
 
Anthony
Posted by: Anthony_SRR Posted on: Aug 25th, 2007, 6:01pm
Ok guys, I just got back from the RR museum’s Circus Theme festival and had a great time!
 
I also joined the RR museum so I’m now a Student member of the RR museum of Long Island and I’ll be able to run some of the model RR displays on the weekends so I hope to bring some of my engines to run as well. But that only sour part of the day was the LIRR was closed today so we could not ride. They are replacing a bridge so the mainline is shutdown but it was still a great day  
Posted by: Anthony_SRR Posted on: Aug 25th, 2007, 6:05pm
Here are some cars sitting next to the LIRR tracks. If you notice the yellow car, that is a repainted baggage car. For some reason they pained it like a circus car when it was previously a LIRR car. Not sure why.  2

Hi,
 
I always thought of the LIRR's "double deckers" as true double deckers, but actually they are not. Their height was limited due to the tunnel height limitations. The walkway was halfway between the upper and lower seats. You stepped down for the lower seats and stepped up for the upper seats. Interesting cars, and as I remember it, they ran fairly smoothly.
Posted by: Anthony_SRR Posted on: Aug 25th, 2007, 8:19pm
They have allot of cabooses

Hi Alan,
 
Yes this is a very interesting car compared to the cars of that time and modern cars today. It is a shame it is not open for tours.
 
NOTE: The yellow and orange cabooses with the snowplow belong to the NRHS Twin folks. I had always thought it was owned completely by the RR museum

And for my last pictures at Riverhead, a RR crossing pretecting the Miniature train. The next time I will be at Riverhead will be to volunteer. I just have to wait for them to e-mail me the schedule.
 
This Concludes Part 1: The Riverhead Site Next I went to Greenport by car since there was no LIRR train. It looks about 30 minutes. We first had lunch and pent the rest of our time at Greenport. I got myself a nice RRMLI shirt and hat to wear.
 
Look for Part: 2 The Greenport site tomorrow.
Hope you have enjoyed these so far!

Yo Anthony,
 
Great shots, you must have had a blast.
 
My Aunt lived in Hollis, and near her house they kept several "Jaws", but not with the fancy paint job. We kids enjoyed climbing all over them. Couldn't believe how tall they were.  
 
Another famous story about your mysterious friend photograph. At Universal Studios, California, there are also such displays, but of various movies they had made. Some visitors were coming down the stairs, and this Keystone Cop was just standing there, and one lady passed close by him, he suddenly moved and smiled at her. Yup, he was a REAL mannequin. You never heard such a LOUD SCREAM. We all got hysterical laughing. Fairly common in Southern California to see these Real Mannequins, especially around Hollywood and Vine and the Chinese Theatre. The last one I saw was Chewbaca of Star Wars, he also was real, but never moved, until he wanted to scare the kids or some pretty tourist.
Posted by: Anthony_SRR Posted on: Aug 26th, 2007, 10:45am
Hi Alan,
 
Thanks for sharing that. It must have been cool it see a number of plows.
 
It is also really funny there is a manikin that scares people. The first time I saw the one at greenport, I was a little surprised by it.

Yes, I joined Saturday at the RR festival. I met John P. and he e-mailed me a schedule for running trains, so I should hopefully be there every Saturday for the next to months.
Hope to meet you!

For my last pictures inside of No.16’s cab. The only reason I got this shot is because some kids opened the cab door and went in. They got yelled out and there parents really gave it to them. So I went outside and close the door

I was at the museum Sunday and allot happed. I was running the o gauge layout along with the garden layout. The world’s fair train was also running. But we did open an hour late so I was stuck out in front of the gate until some came to open up and do other things. Also, we will be getting some new cars at the museum sometime in the next few weeks (LIRR M-1 electric’s) so I’m pretty excited about that.
 
I tryed some new anglwes with the LIRR

Sorry to butt in but, wouldn't it be something if that caboose somehow started rolling onto the Garden layout. That would be a huge dissastor. Liking the new angles BTW.

Here are 2 events we will have this weekend I will not be able to make either because
1. One part  is on a Thursday which is a school night
2. The event on Saturady is down the street and I will be at the museum working
 
Here they are...
2007 Riverhead Hobo Gathering

twenty degrees, it was wild. If inclement weather prevails in 2007 or if it’s more
convenient for the school we may travel the two blocks to the Junior High School and give
a presentation in their auditorium. This element of the weekend is still being formulated.

Good to hear some LIRR M1s are being preserved, I've always been interested in the LIRR operations and equipment. Very cool to have a station right next to the museum...
Posted by: Anthony_SRR Posted on: Sep 28th, 2007, 5:55pm
It is very good to be next to the LIRR for the following
 
It makes for great tours for visitors, view Riverhead and take the train to our other museum down the tracks
 
We have somewhere to run No.39 when she is in service
 
I'll be at the museum tomorrow
 
Anthony
Posted by: Pennsy Posted on: Sep 28th, 2007, 6:02pm
Yo Anthony,
 
Sounds like you know when # 39 will be under steam once again. Let us know when that is going to happen. I still assume that 39 will be under steam before 35 will be under steam, unless you have information otherwise.
Posted by: Anthony_SRR Posted on: Sep 29th, 2007, 8:54pm
Tell me about it. Ok here is the story about No.39 And as far as I know 39 is in better shape than 35 so she would be done first
 
 
Story…The museum originally asked the state for $800,000 in 1990 to restore No.39. It took until 2004 for us to get the money due to political problems, but we got, what we wanted originally which is a problem. In 1990 it would of cost that much but currently we spent if not all most of the money so we have to raise another half a million dollars due to prices going up over the years so presently 39 is sitting doing nothing in the middle of getting tubes in, while her finished tender is sitting in Riverhead all shinny and new. I’m really worried that if the tender sits there for 2 long it will go back to the way it was before and we are back to square one. So right now we barley have enough money to keep the museum running without getting the money needed to finish 39 so we have a big problem
 
And to make matters worse the events we are having this weekend is a flop. No one is showing up so I believe we are loosing money with this.  But I must say this morning we had a number of cubscouts take a tour  and go to Greenport on the train. The same happened last weeks so that is good.
 
 
Our goal is to evetuly have the museum as a Tourist RR with Steam passanger trains but that will not happen for  A LONG TIME
 
Also next saturday I will be takieng my G Gauge Thomas set to run on the garden tracks outside

It is. I would love to keep that thing, I love Combines. Then we would have 2 coaches, full baggage and combine. That is the second car we scrapped. That one is about 100 years old and in bad shape like the other one.

We will be selling it, by the pound. The price of scrap is high right now so hopefully we will make something off of it. Maybe for the upkeep of the M-1’s. I’m not sure of there condition but my guess is they have been tagged. We should be getting them in the next 10 Days. I was told at the end of the mouth
 
Fot those have no idea what an M-1 is, here is a picture

 
Also thanks for the link to the pictures of some of the RMLI’s stuff

Well at least you'll get some money out of it. Still it's a darn shame. And those pictures of the RMLI's stuff is pretty cool.

Thanks! My photos are actually pre-RMLI, when the Sunrise Trail Chapter was in charge of them. 4 were repainted in 1976 for the Bi-Centennial, and sadly, only a few of the original 14 cars survive today.

Here are some pictures from last weekend. It was a horrible rainy day but that was not bad. The president of the museum came down and ran his O gauge trains that were really nice.  I also got some shots of the LIRR from the upstairs window. Hopefully this weekend will be better. It will be cold though. My ELA teacher will be coming by to experience Long Island's Rich Railroading History!

This weekend was one of the best I ever had at RMLI.
 
Around 11:30 another member (john) and I started to decorate for Christmas and when the train came in we stopped and looked out the window. Another member informed us about a mile down the line there was a freight train in a siding. Being the trainfans so John and I drove down to see the train. We got there it was 2 LIRR MP-15s with 5 full hoppers of ballast. The engines were on and everything but they were just sitting. I saw them at about 11:45 and left at 4:00 and they were still sitting there so I can only wonder. So I got some good pics  of them

Believe it or not the front engine was locked and the crew was no where to be found with the door open

Yo Anthony,
 
That one struck a familiar note.
 
Some years ago, an old friend of mine gave me a tumbler, mixed drink glass, with the PRR keystone on it. Had it for some time until the Mrs. dropped it and it smashed on the kitchen floor. Been trying to find a replacement, and source for other bar or lounge glassware with the PRR logo on it to no avail. Any help or sources available to you or your friends on the Island ?

Tryed eBay? They have alot of PRR stuff. Glass wear, plates, even old playing cards. If you want any PRR things, eBay is the place for you.

Another great week in Riverhead. I took the battery out of the world's fair set and I saw 2 New York and Atlantic GP-30s with freight and got some great shots
 
FYI: The LIRR no longer has freight bushiness, the NYA took that over. The LIRR has freight cars but they are used for MOW

Posted by: SRC#90_KB3PQD Posted on: Dec 13th, 2007, 4:41pm
Go to your menu stettings in your camera and try to find the ISO metter. Once you find that, put it on 100. You never want it over 200 while it's light out. And if you put it on 0, the picture will be a little dark. Not much, but still. Plus, don't shoot towards the sun. Always away or some angle that the sun won't be bright. And when your outside, keep the flash off. Unless if it's dark. But even then sometimes you don't need it. Hope this helps.

HERE IS SOME NEW THINGS GOING ON AT THE RAILROAD MUSEUM I'M VERY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE
 
Lecture - Atlantic Avenue Tunnel
 
 
The Trustees of the Railroad Museum of Long Island are proud to host an informational lecture by Mr. Bob Diamond, president of the Brooklyn Historic Railway Association; along with a video documentary by Long Island Oddities Editor and television producer, Mr. John Leita, related to "The Abandoned Long Island Railroad ~ Atlantic Avenue (Cobble Hill) Tunnel, Brooklyn, NY." This program will be held on Saturday, March 29, 2008 at 1:00 PM in the Suffolk County Historical Society education hall, 300 West Main Street, (across from the Riverhead Public Library), Riverhead, NY. Ample municipal parking is available in the courthouse parking area, Osborne and Court Streets - behind the Historical Society building.  
 
Please join us to explore this long-forgotten western terminus of the Long Island Railroad mainline to Greenport. In 1979, as an engineering student, Mr. Diamond rediscovered and opened the abandoned tunnel. Leading from the shore of the East River, this tunnel was the outset for wealthy New Yorkers to journey to Boston in the mid 1800’s via Greenport and Stonington, Connecticut.
 
Admission is FREE and open to the public. Information tables for the Railroad Museum of Long Island, the Brooklyn Historic Railway Association and Long Island Oddities will be available.  
 
See us on the web at www.brooklynrail.net/index.html and www.lioddities.com

And on one final note, opening day will be on my birthday, April 12th 2008, opening at our regular time of 10:00am. I can’t wait to have visitors again. I have been going to the museum over the winter and we have done allot that you will have to wait to see

Posted by: Anthony_SRR Posted on: Mar 9th, 2008, 11:08am
GREAT NEWS EVERYONE. I just found out that the LIRR dropped off 4 new cars for us, 2 old electric cars M-1s and 2 coaches that look like the ones we have. I have not gotten a chance to get out to Riverhead for pictures so here are some I found of the M-1s. These are from the LIRR fourum. There are more M-1 pics beacuse they have been retired on long island  and many thought there were none left but RMLI got the last 2. They look like they are in great shape. I hope I can say the same for the coaches.

Hi Guys,
 
A very productive day at RMLI, I’m very tired. The world fair track needs some annual maintence so I worked on that. I also started to garden a little to make things look nice. I then went over and helped some guys put a coat of primer on caboose C-60 and before I left I helped to install steps so I can bring people into the M-1 cars. So much to do still though.
 
New York & Atlantic Railroad stopped by with freight in the morning so I took the opportunity with the photos. I’ll post them sometime this week.

That would be cool.. BTW.. I found an older photo of the now Circus Painted Baggage Car. You guys should restore it to this paint scheme.
Posted by: Anthony_RMLI Posted on: Aug 2nd, 2008, 9:50pm
I'm dieing to do that. I really hate the cirucs paint, once the other cars get some TLC I think we will do that.
 
When primer is not "splashed" on it, it looks very nice

 
Just got back from our first Thomas trip in Conn. It rained all day, but it was nice. Nothing compared to Strasburg though
 
Nice Picture  by the way! I love how the sky looks

Well folks, after a long long day of work, and the help of 10 high school students, Cars 7737 and 2924 have been restored to there orignal grey. Hopefully in the spring they will get some lettering, and will be all fresh for the 2010 season. If it does not rain tommrow 68 will get some paint as well.

Good Morning,
 
Before I leave to get some paint on our Caboose, C-68 I thought I would share with you, what myself and President Don Fisher worked on yesterday to further restore passanger car 2924 as well as BM-62 7737. The under carriage and steps of these cars got a nice gloss black and our looking great! Check back later for photos of C-68

Good Evening Ladies  & Gentlemen,
 
 Today at The Railroad Museum of Long Island (RMLI), we were doing some work on our narrow gauge 0-4-0T No. One. Before I get into the details of work, a little background info for you.
 
Built by the H.K. Porter Locomotive works in 1921 for the Defiance Coal Company in Mentmore, New Mexico. A 40" gauge railroad was operated between their two mines and the coal tipple at Mentmore, a distance of about 1 3/4 miles by rail. Coal was loaded in small jennies, called "pit cars" from the mine entrance to the coal tipple. The coal company closed in 1952, with the last run by rail taking place on March 28th of that year.
 
After the mine ceased operations, it was purchased by Dr. Stanley Groman, who had it shipped during January 1953 to Sandy Pond in Sandy Creek Township in upstate New York. This site became one of the first operating rail Museums in the country.
 
Known as Rail City, the operation continued until its closure on October 13, 1974. Due to its 40 inch gauge, the #1 was just a static display.
 
After Rail City closed, the engine sat idle until John Degan of Southampton, NY came upon the engine and purchased it from Dr. Groman's estate in the Fall of 1982. Mr. Degan began restoration of the locomotive to operating condition, changed the saddle water tank to two side saddle water tanks, and placed it on a flatbed trailer equipped with rollers. In this manner, the locomotive could be transported over the road to different events and parades across Long Island. It could then be fired up and the drivers could turn around on the trailer. When not on display, the engine was stored in Southampton.
 
Completing several months of negotiations, the #1 was donated to RMLI during Columbus Day weekend of 1999.  
 
The goal is to see her under steam in the coming years.(we are looking at 2012) First, we have to get her trailer up to standards and make her moblie and road worthy, and then work will focus more on the locomotive.
 
Nevertheless, today, thanks to the help of the Long Island antique power association, she got a boiler wash and hydro test. Of course, after pumping the hot water into the engine, we found very few and minor leaks. Among these was a small leak in the throttle, and the plugs. That however can be easily fixed by getting new washers.
 
The Engine itself is in outstanding shape, and has very limited running time. The tubes and firebox look great! There is a very bright future for this engine, and  it may be narrow gauge, but it may be the first steam engine to steam on long island in many years, even if just running in place.
 
However, as I said right now work will focus on getting the truck painted and in good mechanical shape so Number One is mobile. In the spring, I plan to perform an ultra sound on the engine, to give you an idea of the work that will be getting done. and is planned.
 
Also, in Riverhead our Caboose C-68 is in the middle of being repainted. On Monday, I was out grinding along with President Don Fisher the rust spots down and getting her ready for paint. Due to the weather, I have had to hold off, but she should be a solid orange by the end of the month, possibly next week. Today in New York it rained all day.
 
There are so many things going on at the RMLI. Here are some pictures, showing all the work we have accomplished of Number One and Caboose 68.
 
Thank you for your support and interest,
 
Anthony

With all due respect but...
 
I'm all for steam but please God don't tell me you guys actually put a fire in the Porter? Was it checked out by the feds? New tubes? Boiler ultra-sounded? Was it given a full 1472 day inspection and all necessary work to allow it to steam? If this was just a rainy day "Hey lets go fire up the Porter," I wouldn't trust those involved with this one with a Lionel O-gauge model let alone a LIRR G5. If this was the case, wait 'till the feds get a load of this one.  
 
I wouldn't trust a fire in in it's current condition and forget about 150 PSI in the boiler.
 
I think an explanation by the original poster is in order.

God no, we would never do that. I assure you there was no fire in the firebox. There was only hot water in the bolier.  
 
And belive it or not, even thought it is a train, the FRA does not need to know anything since it is not on the tracks nor will it be any time soon. All inspections with be preformed by the State of New York.
 
No need to worry before we even think about putting wood in, she will get much more work and many inpsections

Good Evening Ladies & Gentlemen,
 
It may of been Halloween today but the work did not stop at the Railroad Museum of Long Island in Riverhead. We got a a coat of Orange paint onto Former Long Island Railroad  Baywindow Caboose C-68. She has not gotten any TLC in a while, so I took on the project to repaint her.
 
She got one coat today, to cover up all her rust stops and get her ready for winter. In the spring after she has weatherd a little 2 more coats will be applied along with a coat on the roof. Then the detail work and lettering. She will be ready for 2010 museum patrons in late April, ready to tell her story as she has been for so many years, just in fresh as-deliverd paint.
 
We were also lucky enough to have a crew working on preparing our machine for paint.  
 
So much has gotten done this year, and it is all thanks to our volunteers! I don't think I have ever seen so much work go on at one time......3 Railroad Cars painted and a soon a building. Not bad if you ask me.

I NEVER thought the day would come when the RRMoLI would clean the equipment and buildings up a little. While there still is a lot more to go, it is a start. I will have to make a trip out one day to take a look. Great looking work so far.
Posted by: Anthony RMLI Posted on: Nov 1st, 2009, 1:37pm
And don't you worry, there is much more to come. The M-1s are going to get some sprucing up next weekend.
 
But, until the caboose, baggage car and passanger car have letering I don't plan to start another project. Not good to be doing 10 things at once. But I do have plans to get paint on more cars and buildings next year

Evening Folks!
 
We have been very busy at the Railroad Museum of Long Island this spring so far!
 
In Greenport the new exhibit for 2010 is underway and the restrooms are getting some renovations.  
 
In Riverhead a lot has been going on as well. The last few weekends we have been working on getting the G-16 inch gauge 1964 World's Fair train ready! The locomotive and cars have been given there annual inspection and fluid replacement, and are ready to go. We have also done some major track work, which included pulling ties and cleaning out crossings and switches. She is  ready to go and will be running when we open on April 10th next week!
 


 
We have also been working on the cosmetic restoration of BEDT 0-6-0T Engine 16. Plans for this loco include major wood replacement, paint, placing it on wheels and track, lettering and installation of working accessories such as headlights, bells and gauges. She will look good when she is done.  Thus far we have put in new metal under her belly to keep her from falling apart and it looks great! Today President Don Fisher and I cleaned the belly and applied paint to the engine. It is starting to take shape but there is still a long way to go.
 
New shinny metal in place on a rusty engine



 
Painting today




The end result


 
This year there will be a lot of progress at the RMLI. We hope you will come out and pay us a visit this year! So far plans call for the compleation of Hack C-68 and coaches 2924 and 7737. A few of our buildings will also get paint and major work. There is so much to list, may be easier to come and see for yourself

Evening Folks!
 
Rather then doing my usual weekly updates, they will now be featured on our website, at the Railroad Museum of Long Island. There is a lot of work going on this year, with a lot of different equipment, so make sure to take a look every few weeks to see what is going on. I'll still make these posts here so you know to look!

What are you folks using for track lubrication? Grease? I've also seen a thick oil used on 16" lines sporting G-16s like yours.  
 
Any plans to get rid of that awful hood?

Hi WH,
 
We use blue greese on the track, a little does like magic for the flanges.
 
You know, it has been talked about, replacing the current motor in it and getting a smaller one. Right now we don't plan on doing it since it is running, but someday when we have to replace it we will do it and get a new hood, so it is orginal again
 
Anthony
Posted by: WH Posted on: Apr 25th, 2010, 9:27pm
Thanks.  
 
We use a very heavy duty/thick powder type grease. Again, I'm not running around in a 600' oval on  
pancake flat ground so you guys likely have a little more give when it comes to grease on the rails. I know I'd rather over grease and get some on the rail heads and have a slipping problem on a 600' oval than my 4 miles with grades, grade crossings, bridges, tunnels, etc. LOL!

Howdy Folks,
 
With summer tomorrow there is much progress at the Railroad Museum of Long Island(RMLI) Riverhead Museum. Restoration continues with our projects while visitors come and enjoy the history of Long Island
 
 
Caboose C-68
After much work completed in the fall of 2009, Project Manager Anthony DeBellis(me) solely in 10 started the summer season off with some fresh paint on 68. On Saturday 68 got a second coat of gloss black paint on the roof with safety orange on her car body with some black also applied to the under body and some other details. As you can see she looks amazing, with only a few more days of minor detail work remaining. A once brown caboose is once again in her proud Dashing Dan Era orange.



 
 
GE 25 Toner 399
Progress continues with the museum's operating locomotive. Rot has been cut out of the locomotive's cab with new pieces of metal cut with some already welded back into place. Rot has also continued to be removed from the inside floor of the cab. A box that helps to protect the engine's motor was also removed and cleaned up with it's shape made into a better rectangle. When the LIRR put a new engine in, it was bigger then the old one so a small box was added so it would fit properly.

Once an eye soar is now one the best looking things on the property. The entire building had been painted with added details to come. More recent pictures to come in the next report

 
Volunteers are always welcome! Visit our website for all our most recent projects. We are moving a full throttle and we are not stopping.

Next Saturday I will attempt to take a ride over the museum to see what improvements (dare I say cleaning the place up... ) have been done.  
 
Not making any definite plans but I would like to swing by if I have the time.
Posted by: Anthony RMLI Posted on: Jul 8th, 2010, 4:21pm
Outstanding!
 
I'll be there putting the finishing touches on Caboose 68. I got some yellow paint for the handrails yesterday.  
 
Work will also be going on in our old storage building that is being renovated into an exhibit hall for the LIONEL layout from Michigan. The A/C and security alarms where installed, so next dry wall!
 
Other plans for the fall include the repainting of LIRR RS-3 1556 and Baggage car 7727, with the restoration of 0-6-0 16 to be started in Spring 2011.

Other plans for the fall include the repainting of LIRR RS-3 1556 and Baggage car 7727, with the restoration of 0-6-0 16 to be started in Spring 2011.

Was pleased to meet WH today a the the museum.
 
As I am sure he saw the museum still has a long way to go, but is getting there. But I'll be in Nevada soon so we'll see how much work they get done without me hehe

Evening Folks!
 
A LOT of work is happening in Riverhead right now. I think y'all find it interesting. From RS-3 Work, to the repainting of BEDT 16 with some carpentry work on a new deck there is a lot to do, with something for everyone! There has never been a better time to volunteer and work on your topic of interest! Interested in volunteering? Making a Difference? Preserving History? Learning something new? Feel free to send myself an e-mail at adebellis@rmli.us or President Fisher at dfisher@rmli.us to find out more on preserving the rich history of not only Long Island, but the State of New York.

A question for the RMLI folks:  
 
What are you using for track lubrication on your 16" gauge loop? What is the product name and have you been pleased with the results? What kind of flange wear do you see after a season with regular (every other day or so) track lubrication?  
 
Thanks. Am looking for a newer product for the C.P. Huntington and thought I would see what you folks were using.

This thread needs a good shot in the arm.  Nobody has posted here in 6 years.  Wow.
Anyway, I am providing a link to this New York-metropolitan railroad.  It's still alive and faring well.  There is a lot to see and do.  Please won't you take a look at the site and give these guys consideration for a day out?
