So, updating the list again...
 
My next quest is to identify locomotives currently on the BRWRR system, and I'm still trying to place the dates the other engines were on the line.
 
Thanks again for all the help. Oh, and if anyone has a copy of the old Black River and Western Story from the 1970s, I'd love to see a copy. A scanned version would be great. My father had one and I remember it growing up, but our search has come up empty. If I do find it I'll scan it up, great stuff in it. Its the BRW version of Strasburgs "The Road to Paradise"

 A current Roster is on the website, I not sure if the locations have been updated but all the engines are there. http://bdrry.com/Locomotives/Locomotives.htm
There was at one time an all time roster on another website but it seems to have been taken down. The list of visting locomotives could be much longer, however, one would need a rule to distinguish "vistors", such the M&E alco, from "Residents under private ownersip" such as the late Sam Freeman's 148.

Gee, there have been a few changes to the above list over then past few years. To include more privately owned locos, plus adding Erie 436 to the BRRHT roster.
