I visited the BSOR on 1/30/14. Beautiful sunshine, but trains were not running!
 
Here's 2010 in front of the Hamburg enginehouse. She was vandalized and may be put back in service.

The first time I saw her, she was painted red fully lettered for BUFFALO SOUTHERN RAILROAD and wheel less..that was the mid 1990's the last time I saw her it was 2011 and she was still lettered and painted red and wheel less.
