Well, I  s'pose starting with a few basics would be good...
 
Steamtown's #2317 is a G3c Pacific (4-6-2), built by Montreal Locomotive Works in 1923.

Some days, the most interesting person you meet is a river with a train running beside it.

I believe she will be operational tommorow. When I was at Steamtown last Saturday, I was talking with the engineer that was running the 3254 and he said the 2317 will be out on March 7th which is tommorow. Also I checked the Steamtown March Schedule and it says that the "pullman experience" is starting tommorow and the 2317 is usually the engine that does that program. Here's the link to the Steamtown events for March.

All i have to say is that they finally painted the wheels. The engine finally looks presentable to the public!

Well I have rode the "Pullman Experience" and I enjoyed it. You get a drink and a bag of chips and the park ranger tells the history behind the Pullman company and George Pullman. The ride basically goes where the short train rides go. My favorite part was getting a tour of the Lehigh Valley 353(on loan to Steamtown), which is absolutely beautiful. The car you ride in is a commuter car built in the 1950's by the Pullman Company. It is airconditioned and has the name "Good Vibrations". Overall I enjoyed the "experience" and I felt like I was back in the past riding in style. I wouldn't mind having the LV 353 and going cross country with it.
Here's a link to some info about the 353 that you will have the tour in.
