A couple of years ago I think they were doing some kind of " shop shuttle " with the Baldwin 0-6-0. Maybe thats what they were doin. Wow, # 2124 needs some TLC because it definatly appears as alotta peoples favorites. Why is 425 painted in that ugly blue? They need her back in GM&O black!

It wasn't a "shop shift" it was a short excursion and I mean short! (Maybe 5 miles or so...) I agree with the #2124, it really needs some work! The #425 is in Blue because it was the old BM&R/R&N Paint Scheme designated for her. I personally like it in blue more then black.

LOL maybe it was a short charter or something!  They dont usually do that.  Actually now that I look at #425 she does look pretty damn sharp in that blue.    Is she still painted that way even though now shes sitting inoperable in the RBM&N shops?

Hi - I saw that some photos of Steamtown were on this forum and I thought I'd share a couple of mine. This first one is of Canadian Pacific 2317 as it stopped at the station in Moscow on July 31,1998.

I'm sorry! That first photo was of the turn around of the engine. Here is the station stop.

Here's CP 2317 on an earlier excursion to Kingsley. The time was July 21, 1989 and we traveled over the McNichols Viaduct.

Hi Chuch,
 
Nice photos, but they prove that the weather is definitely getting to the steamers. A new paint job is recommended, and possibly a good coating of wax. If you can't keep them indoors, you are going to have to protect them against the elements.

Yes 2124 could use paint. In my opinion it looked better in the faded old paint it was in before the last time it was painted.
