P&W No. 46.  An example of the heavy wooden MU's the Bullets replaced.  Built by St. Louis Car Co. in 1907, she will be 100 years old in less than 2 years.

Another of No. 46.  This car, along with orange work car No. 401, ran as the Santa Train at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia, when they used to run there.

For NKP759 and 756_fan:  It was kinda closed in so I did the best I could.

 Thank you for the pictures RDG. It is hard to get a decent shot of the 759. But it still looks good and many people that come to Steamtown think that the 759 is one of Steamtowns operational engines lol, I wish.

Acela Express' Granddaddy, broadside.

 
Great shots, RDG!  I'd give anything to see the Santa Train run again.  I miss the Penn's Landing operation.  
 
IMO, if they get 206 running, instead of destroying its sleek lines with poles, maybe they should put a pan on it, or at least a single, centered pole.  Just a thought.

I was at Steamtown today and took some shots. Enjoy.  
First one is of Berlin Mills Railway #7. I know some of you are wondering where did this engine come from. It was in the asbestos and lead shop for a year or so and it was recently pulled out into the yard. It is a 2-4-2.

Here's a head shot of the MC 519. The headlight has been smashed and the number plate is rusty. Although I think that the real 519 number plate is in storage.

Old water spout foundation near the mall walkway. The walkway uses the old footers of the coal ramp that was dismantled in the 1950's.

Hey guys,
 Just wanted to post a photo of the "junkyard" between the shops and roundhouse. The K-4 wheels are in the distance, the 3rd driver is in front of the shops. Check out my other photos in the NKP 759 Engine Discussion.

#47 has a good lot of history if you don't know it..............Well here it is!
#47 is a double header 4-6-4 and is one of 5 built for communiter train service out of Montreal and was built in 1914. And was the very first operation of Steamtown U.S.A.. She only steamed for 5 weeks between july and august of 1964 on the tracks of the Claremont and Concord Railroad a shortline owned by Samual Pinnsly.
She only steamed for 5 weeks because her records were lost in a fire in canada. The FRA was blindly took without paperwork the locomotive could not operate. The fire was dropped on august 1964. The locomotive is at steamtown today! Sad isn't it!
 
Also more of her history...........Canadian National, #47
4-6-4T, Builder: Montreal Locomotive Works, September 1914. Builder's no. 54896.
 
 
 
Cylinders: 21 x26
 
Drive Wheels: 63
 
Weight on Drivers: 146,000
 
Boiler Pressure: 210
 
Tractive Effort: 32,487
 
 
 
Built for Grand Trunk Railway Co. of Canada as #1542. Became Canadian National #47, class X- 10a, after merger of the two companies in 1923. This Baltic Tank locomotive was used in commuter service around Montreal. Locomotive has no tender but a tank for water and a bin for five tons of coal built into the extended frame behind the cab. The engine operated equally well in forward or reverse, an important asset when commuter turning facilities were lacking.  Sold to Nelson Blount in 1959. Only Baltic tank locomotive in the United States
