Well heres a short answer for you WM734Fan. On weekdays you will normally see 2317 on the short train rides, and on the weekends the 3254 will be pulling the shuttles and the 2317 will be pulling the Pullman Experience. This is of course in conjunction with normal maintenance schedules, yardmaster preference, and visitation trends. Hope this helps!

Yes it did!  Thanks a lot! When you say "weekdays," is that Thrusday and Friday, or is it Monday thru Friday?

Monday thru Friday, and on excursion days the 2317 is left alone and only shuttles and possibly caboose rides are done in the yards, as the 3254 and 514 are out on excursions. Take note that the moscow excursions this fall alternate days week to week with the tobyhanna trips and will feature the 3254 alone.

Hi, Colin:
Keep in mind that while 2317fan is telling the truth, this current week bucks the trend.  CN 3254 is on Scranton Limited duty on the weekdays, while 2317 undergoes a 92 day inspection (mainly a boiler wash and drawbar checkup.)  
The Thursday to Sunday yard activity was not in your head.  In April and May, it was going to be that all hired crews would work 4 days a week, 10 hour days, all on the same 4 days.  This would mean that 3 days would be all volunteer.  As it turns out, by May, the employees are more evenly scattered through the week, and crews are aided by volunteers, to guarantee 7 day operation.

Hey guys,
 2317_fan said that there was supposed to be regularly scheduled Moscow Excursions, but when I checked the Steamtown website, there was nothing there, I'm in Poland right now but I don't think there is a week delay on webmaster updates? Any more info on these Moscow Excursions?

Hey guys,  
 Good news, the 2317's tires have arrived.  So Steamtown is one step closer to getting the 2317 back on the main

Right now it looks as if 2317 will have to wait until its big inspection for its new tires. The reason is 3254 is in the shop right now receiving its 2 year federal inspection, and will not be ready until mid April. The work is being performed on 3254 in the restoration/car shop because there is no room in the main shop to do the work. Also the main shop is where the tires will have to be done on 2317, so unless they perform a miracle its safe to say 2317 is in the yard again this year, and may be shut down after this season for its 1472 day inspection.

How long do you think that the 1472 day inspection will take on this engine. I really would like to see this engine on the mainline again, I was on this engine during railcamp, and its a shame that it only goes in the yard for now. And I thought that the 3254 just got a major overhaul? I alos was on that engine during railcamp, and fired on that engine
 
Thanks

Yes 3254 received its 1472 day inspection. However a 2yr inspection is also required, the firebox is the area of concern during a 2yr inspection. Also 2317 will take about 2yrs to complete its 1472 depending on how busy the shop is and if any major problems are found.
