I am thinking about joining the BRRHT and helping out with the restoration of BR&W #60. I want to be apart of something like this, so when it runs, I can say that I helped restore this peice of history. It's time for me to stop foaming and start doing something that can make a difference. I'm planning to visit the RR first on May 20th, to see what it's like.

On a sum what off topic note, I think the BLACK RIVER is the best paint on 60, but if I'm not mistaken I think they painted the tender in GREAT WESTERN  already

This weekend I'm going to suggest this (in a non-pushy way of course) to how the tender should be painted. †Here's the drawing I whipped up, hopefully they will aprove. Anybody agree/disagree with the slight changes on the sides of the tender? †I'd like to see what everyone thinks...

 
But I really like this  design

Hey Eric,
 
Yes, the tubes have been delivered. †Last I was there (two weeks ago) there were only about 4-5 of the big 6" tubes installed. †But now that they have the rest of the smaller tubes I'm pretty sure things will pick up. †They are so close to completeling that thing it isn't funny. †I'll give an update for you as far as the tubes go when I head out there this weekend.

What day this weekend?

I don't think the BRW every put her in Great Western Paint. Some folks might be supprised to realise how much 60 looks like her former GW self.  
 
Oh and btw I like 60 with just Back River on the tender because I grew up with it being that way.

I know where that picture was taken. It sure wasn't Flemington or Ringos. Does anyone else know where it was taken?

Colin,
 
I just have to say that drawing looks outstanding. It looks like a piece of work done by a draftsman!  
 
About the scheme - yes I agree with you Colin, though they might not go for your idea, †I do think the tender should read "BLACK RIVER & WESTERN" insead of just Black River.  
 
But it'll be alright either way; it's not like Black River is that bad really. I grew up with that on the tender and never thought it too strange, but it would make more sense to have the full name on the tender.  
 
Again, nice work... I hope they order those 2" inch tubes soon... I really wanna see that thing steamin' again...  
 
Joe...

Hi all-
 
    Ah, Eric, yeah I was at Whippany for that event. My dad almost got hit by the 142 cuz he wasnt paying attention, lmao. I was only like 6 or 7, and I remember I started crying hysterically when we got on 142`s train cuz I only wanted to ride behind the 60. So we hadda switch trains lol.  
    And although this has nothing to do with trains Eric, (inside joke between us ) I just killed behemoth spider #1 for the season in my basement. I sprayed it with this Raid ultra super dupermax crap and man that mofo started runnin around in circles, giving me time to land a perfectly placed dumbell shot on its head.  
    Anyway........u know a road trip is in order the first day 60 is back in action lol.   Lata    -Chris

I still cannot get over #60 was in Whippany to start with.  I never found out about it until maybe about a year ago.  Whippany is so close to where I live and I can't believe I missed it!  I wouldn't have remembered much, but just the thought of it being someplace besides the BR&W shocks me.

I was reading a book on the Long Island Railroad and one of the pages had a picture of 60 in the yard, with the caption saying, Black River And Western 60 visits the LIRR yard from her home rails of new jersey. I'll have to find that book again and look it up.............. It would be nice to see 142 and 60 doublehaeding at a Railfan Weekend

Yep BR&W #60 was the last steamer to operate on the LIRR. Hard to belive but true. 60 was moved on a barge over the Hudson River. I have never seen a photo of 60 in New York, I would be really cool though to see 60 crossing the Hellsgate bridge!
 
On a related note can someone tell me why it says LIRR #35 was leased to the BRW?

5/12/07 was a day full of large progress. †The crew had been poking in tubes since Wednesday. †Just about half of the tubes are rolled and in the locomotive. Now that there are a few more people working on her the work is getting done much faster. †Casey showed up for the first time and many other volunteers were there, so things moved more quickly and smoothly. †Man power makes all the difference.

Yeah, I did see a bunch of guys pluggin away on 60 when I was down there, I even think I saw Colin go into the firebox and roll tubes and then for some reason he was standing up on top of 60's cab!  Yup if those guys there keep pluggin away she could get done soon enough to make me and some people like me who are either little kids or little kids at heart when they see a steam locomotive under steam.  I know they got over 30 tubes installed and rolled on the firebox side yesterday alone maybe if that keeps up she could be moved under her own power sooner than you can imagine.  If you want 60 running I recomend you show your vote by joining the trust and volunteering time on 60.  It sure looks like fun anyway
