hey why dont we put 752 in her claredon and pittsford

I'll tell you why not...  
 
Because a locomotive should be proud of the railroad it WORKS for, and right now, 752 works hard on the Black River & Western, that's how railroading was back in the day.  
 
An example is NH&I #40, built for the Lancaster & Chester, but sold to the Cliffside Railroad, all in the steam-era days. Now, you didn't see the Cliffside saying "Oh, but the L&C scheme is heritage that we must keep!" No, they did what any normal steam era railroad did, paint her up for the railroad she works for.  
 
Unless it's a famous engine like 611 or 614, of which it would seem to be sacrilidge to paint into a "smaller railroad's" paint scheme like the Black River & Western, then I believe that all engines should take pride in the railroad they work for and run on, and it should be apparent in their paint scheme.

I like the look of 752 now, so I keep it the way is. Can we not turn this thread into a heritage vs. tourist RR paint schemes?

But 40 is owned by the New Hope and Ivyland, and they repainted her in Lancaster and Chester for that special photo freight trip, and that is all i meant by repainting 752; just for Railroad days weekend in June, and then change it back to Black river, and seeing as this is so off topic from 60, I am ending this here.  This should really be in the BRRHT topic or something else, sometimes we get carried away with one thing and it leads to something totally different.

Asking what the latest is on #60 every other day isn't going to get you any answers...when people get the chance, go to the RR and see, they will post it.  If you read the previous posts on the top of this page and the page before, you will have your answer.

Today i noticed A NEW PIECE OF EQUIPMENT in Ringoes yard  it looked to me that it was an e-7 or an e-8 or a e-9 but what is it doing there? the BRW says that it workes and is being restored

Joe,
 
To answer your question, yes the BR&W is working on a E8 for the New York & Greenwood Lake Railroad. The unit is formerly Conrail #4022 and was previously owned by Juniata Terminal (owners of sister units 4020 and 4021, now PRR 5809 and 5711). The 4022/NYGL 833 is being restored to a Erie two-tone green paint scheme.
 
Hope this helps,
-Mike

Good news, fellas...
 
Most of the tubes are in! This is a major step toward gettin her done, and once they've finished this it's not too much longer until she's steaming again!
