I'm pretty tempted to do that as well. Thats al it would need, a good brand of spray paint. We could get it done in no time . It's really not that hard to spray paint an engine that just needs touchup compared to completely painting the engine by hand.

Heck, I would paint the whole thing!  I would hand-paint the number plate, the number bellow the cab, the READING on the tender, and the cab window trim.  Let me at it!!!!!!!

I'd like to see WM fan paint 111' of pure American muscle.   . Painting the engine would be the easy part but the lettering and numbers would be a but more difficult.

I would also enjoy painting. Here's a picture of the Reading 2124 after it was painted in 1996 or 97', not sure what year but it looked beatiful.

Here's an aerial shot of Steamtown for those of you that have never been there and want to see the whole museum site. Found this great shot at http://www.carlabraham.com
 
On the top left is a portion of the former Lackawanna Steam shops. Enjoy!

Awesome shot!
 
Looks like it was taken out of a book on the CN I have ....most color photos too!
 
that shot could pass for the mid 1950's

           After we watched the ash-dump demonstation for #3254, she coupled onto her train, and they brought 2317 out for the same timeless procedure.  
 
      I'll post more later. I have a bunch!

Nice pics Cy! I love the last one! The 2317 looks like a fat-belly monster!  Can't wait to see the rest later!

    When we were sitting in the station, we got a run-by courtesy 2317 at about 30-35 mph. They came back before we left, and then they staged a race between 3254 and 2317, which paced each other for about a mile.
