The classic #60 diamond on the back of the tender...
 
Anyone think she needs a coat of fresh paint?

 
Yes, I think she does need a new coat, how ever I think she got one not too long ago, oh well. So how many of us rung that bell?, can I asume BRWRuckus rung it aswell, did you get a chance to meet him?

I'm not sure if I ran into BRWRuckus or not. He could have been the guy who let Joe and myself up in the cab for all I know. There were two guys in the shop. They were both very nice and talked away to us.
 
BTW great photos Joe, it was good meeting up with you yesterday. I hope they're just replacing the old water spout with a new one.

I hope the removal of the water plug is not a sign of things to come.

As I recal the water pump from the last time I was in Ringoes it was a pile of s**t. I would not say there was alot of rust or that it was oxidised but it did not look like it was ready for 60.

Not to worry about #60 and her waterplug. The plug was in need of repairs and was in danger of falling over. It has been taken down so we can repair its foundation and other odds and ends. It should be back in place sometime this spring.

Restoration of #60 IS progressing at a steady pace. About a week ago new super-heater tubes arrived on the property. We're getting there...
 
However, neither the BRW nor the BRRHT have announced a date for the return to service of #60. That being said, it is very realistic to expect to see it under steam this summer or fall, and there remains the outside chance of a late spring appearance.

   
The director of the Black River Railroad histouric trust says so and frankly he is down there more than any of us.

Awesome pics guys, Yes.. i was helping out wit 60 sometime ago.. I was in the tender with a needle gun chipping away all the rust and scale. I must say the inside of 60's tender was in poor shape, the baffles were all loose and what not. But, everyone did a wonderful job! And everything has progressed very well!! I havent been around too much anymore due to my work schedule, but im glad to see 60 getting finished!  Awesome pics guys!

if she will be out this year I'm right because I said we will see her out by '08........it would be AWSOME if she will be out in time for the mixed freight

#60 will be out by 2016!  
 
If she's running this year, I will be right... No wait, I might not be! By then #60 could be down again for another large rebuild.
 
A question about that actually -  
 
Any particular reason #60 seems to go in intervals of running a few years, being down a few years, running a few years, going down for a few years? I find that quite odd... But as it stands this seems like the longest steam reprieve that the BR&W has taken... 7 years going on 8 years out of service... almost a decade.  
 
But all that aside- I love #60 - I'd be overjoyed to see her come out this year.
 
In fact, you guys tell me when you will roll her out of the doors under steam; I'll be there videoing the whole thing. Better put on a good show! I can't see how you couldn't... Just seeing #60 under steam is a sight to behold!
 
Best wishes,
Joe...
