:sigh: Now now, little one. The choo choo will be ready when it is ready, and not a moment sooner. You can play with your Thomas toys while you're waiting, and maybe when you get bigger, you can help fix the choo choo, but only if you're a good boy!

I have my reasons for that remark, but I don't feel like explaining them to the likes of you.

Oh boy does she look good outside for the first time in almost 5 years.    
 
Sand dome is now on.  Also the Bell rope is now connected to the inside of the cab.

Cumbres,
I apologize. I took your comment out of context and assumed you were some whiny malcontent. I need to avoid railroad forums when I haven't been sleeping!

Changing those dirty diapers must be affecting his thinking,or he got a rectal realignment from SEPTA.

 
Hah! Yeah that could be affecting my thinking, but the lack of sleep is probably more of a factor. SEPTA treats me pretty well actually, but my colleagues that don't want to do their job are really getting to me! I like to fix problems, but maybe I'm crazy or something.

NEVER and I reapeat, NEVER attempt to fix a problem at SEPTA. They will bury you in the ground if you even make such an attempt.
 
Just show up, smile occasionally when the boss says something stupid (which is more often than not), act like you're working and go home. Collect your pay, pass go, in fact RUN past it and you will be a much, MUCH happier man by doing so...and be healthy when you retire.
 
If you want to drop dead the minute you walk out the door the final time from SEPTA, go ahead, try to change all the things you want.

I gratefully accept your apology.  I typically enjoy your posts, so I was taken aback by your last one.  I understand how hard it is when you haven't been sleeping.  
 
The latest I heard was June for 60.  I really hope that is the case, as I'd be willing to set time aside to be there at the BR&W when she's running.

Well only TRY and fix something if they'll paying you lots of overtime.  And that smile thing, NHIWW, you must still be working around the public, I only smile when I run out the door everyday!!!!!!    And praying the fumes in the building don't get to me before I retire!

Heavens, I would never dream of trying to fix the bureaucratic problems at that place! I'm just trying to change a lamp or fuse, fix a switch machine, or adjust a track circuit here and there when they call me. It's just that some of my colleagues actually end up working harder at avoiding work than they would if they'd just do their jobs. Like I could be in and out of a switch failure in half an hour if my partner wasn't arguing with me about why we shouldn't mess with it. So instead it takes 4 hours, and it still isn't right. And then they try to make me look like the a-hole. ::grumble::
 
This is kinda way way off topic anyway. Back to our favorite Jersey 2-8-0!

It'll be nice to have another steamer so close to New York.

Any updates on #60?  Is she making any trial runs, any timeframe estimates, etc?  Looking forward to her return!

Just curious as to why no one has posted photos of #60 out of the shop?  
The site is The NERAIL North American Railroad Photo Archive  
Look under Black River and Western RR and #60 is right there, picture taken in May 2009. I can't get the link to post sorry.

Looking good.
 
SR4501, the link you posted seems to be broke (404 Error) Might have to do with the "[url][/url]" you added to the url. I tracked down the photo number. See below:

Does she have a large smokebox or is that just the way she is painted?

I haven't really been following this this topic but I just wanted to see how 60 was coming. So I clicked on the link Espee posted, and man, is it looking good. Kudos to everyone who is and has been working on 60. I can't wait to see it run.

Steve.

 
During World War II the Great Western Railway burned low grade lignite and put extended smokeboxes on all their engines.  Strasburg #90 arrived from Colorado with a significantly elongated smokebox which has since been cut back to its original appearance.  I suspect #60 retains its GW look.

Alan, your suspections are correct. 60 still has her enlargement where as 90 does not.
