I wandered down to NVF yesterday to watch them load 37.  Below are a few of the shots I took.  I was amazed at the size of the rig they are using.

It was being pulled on the trailer by a large wrecker while a fork lift type piece of equipment was pushing.

Now that trailer would be pretty neat to see go down the road and around some bends, that is big  Soooo, I guess this thread will move over to Strasburg?  At least we can check on her during shop tours, once she gets inside. Boy, I hate to see this engine go, but it's for the best I know!

I got there too late on Monday to watch them bring the whole rig in.  I was told by someone who was there that they backed it in from Yorklyn Rd with one guy driving in the cab and another on the ground with a remote steering the rear end.   Would have been fun to watch that.  She is going to a good place - they handled her with great care.  Every inch of the move was well orchestrated.  It is great to see her finally getting some attention.

I saw the trailer up at SRR on Monday and was wondering what was coming, came in, or was going out.  So I'm guessing that they are going to restore 37 and is going out to some other railroad?  I might have to go up tomorrow and see if its up yet.  I'm sure it wont be since they will need to get permits to move up Route 41 and back over to SRR.

It had not moved as of this afternoon.  On Tuesday they were pretty certain that it would not make the trek until next week.  Permits had not been issued yet.

I can't imagine that trailer making it in and out of that little driveway, particularly at the entrance to NVF...but at least it's on the move.
 
Thats one of the last times 37 will be photographed next to the old buildings. Sad to see that much of the older building is now gone..and that one still standing, doesn't look to be holding out much hope of remaining so for much longer.

No. 37 was built by ALCO in 1925 as Sugar Pine Lumber Co. #4, and was sold to Pacific Lumber Co. in 1935. Here she is on her trailer waiting to go to Strasburg Rail Road for her rebuild for her newest owners the Timber Heritage Association. The PRR #4662 posed next to her for one last time on the W&W RR. The #4662 was running short suttle trips from the Hockessin Art Show.

37 left NVF yesterday headed for Strasburg.  However, it didn't make it off the NVF property before the very rear set of axels got tangled up in the fence at the entrance to the NVF property.  I just happened upon it as I was driving home and thought I would check to see if it was still there.  Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me.  I was told that the rear end slid sideways on the gravel when they were negotiating the turn onto Yorklyn Rd and hung itself up in the fence.   They were so close - another 10 feet and they would have cleared it.  I didn't hang around so I don't know when they untangled themselves or how they did it - but I'm sure they managed and hopefully made it to Strasburg without any further incidents.

You must be right, after reading the web site on her, and thinking about it, things just didn't add up. When they said she was sold to the Pacific Lumber Co. in 1935, and working for the Super Pine for the past 11 years.........but they said 1925, so I went with it!
