CP 2317 is scheduled to run to E. Stroudsburg on Sat, May 19.  There is talk of a dry run on the mainline this week, but I don't expect the run to be the entire length of the trip.  This break-in run will be to see how any new parts are working with the old.  The new parts are the No. 3 driver tires and tender truck equalizers.  Not much else.  She wasn't run on Sunday, May 13 because of some problems with the trailing truck.  In the past, they had to boost up the back end because the weight bears down too much on the trailing truck, preventing it from swiveling naturally.  I don't know if this is the problem today, but the past few years, the early season had similar work performed.

I know it is a bit late to make this report, and the photos on pages 33-35 in the picture thread tell the story better than me. However, to tidy up this thread for now, CP 2317 is off on another year of high iron stomping.  After last Saturday's successful run to East Stroudsburg, this old gal will make Memorial Day runs to Tobyhanna on May 26, and to Moscow on the 27.  Both trips are worthwhile in their own way.

Well seeing as 3254 is in the shop, I cannot see a reason it wouldn't be running. Have a safe trip!

No 2317 is sitting in the shop with 4 leaking superheaters under repair and a problem with its tender trucks.

I stand corrected. When did these problems start to occur? It had to have been recent, right?

From a reliable source, get your photos of 2317 while you can. Seems this will be the last season for the 2317.
 
She is due for a major overhaul and cutbacks have made this task currently unobtainable. She will be moth-balled until such funds would become available. The way it looks right now, it looks like she'll be moth-balled indefinately.

Nope. She had wheel work done (new tires) and a few other repairs.

Yesterday (6/21) I saw 2317 pulling the Scranton Limited excursion. I did get a shot of it though with my cell phone. Maybe the repairs are complete?

Yes, Mike, 2317 is back on the rails.  I heard that she returned to service on Sunday, the 17th, which means the Moscow trip was hauled by a D-L diesel.  
Today's excursion (6-23-2007) to Tobyhanna featured a meet at the Tobyhanna run-around with a CPRail SD40-2  This red unit didn't have a train in tow, so I was surprised to see it up there.  After we let the people off our train, off went the diesel.

On Sunday, July 29, after running the 4 Scranton Limited trains, our favorite 4-6-2 had her fire dropped, and during the week was brought over to the locomotive shop.  Right now, her trailing truck wheels are off, and it looks like the tires will be replaced.  The profile of the pony truck wheels is bad, too, and they will need to be turned on the lathe, to make the tread and flange better defined.  This is bad news for the only steamer running so far this year.  CN 3254 is still in pieces, so she can't run anytime soon, either.  I have heard that the earliest for 2317's operation is in "a couple of weeks."  Don't count on Aug 18 being a definite date.  
 
For today's (Aug 4) excursion to Moscow, we used D-L's 2045, the M420.

I’m sorry to hear of this news. How long will it take to get 2317 back on the road?
It seems this is not steamtown’s year
