The B&O Railroad Museum will host its annual Steam Days this week end 24 and 25 April. The star of the show will be B&O 4-4-0 #25 the William Mason. She was rebuilt last year in Strasburg, PA by Warner Brothers for their movie The Wild, Wild West, which will be released in July. The Mason, built in 1856 is the oldest operating steam locomotive in the world. She is currently wearing her movie paint scheme including the number "5" in case the studio wants to do a movie follow up.<p>I shall be there on Sunday afternoon. I shall be easy to spot as I shall be wearing a kilt. If you see me by all means say hello.<p>Have a good weekend.<p>Kevin<br>

Well, how was the weekend? By the way, did you happen to notice the wrecking derrick at the B&O Museum? What roadname is on it and is it one of the old 150 ton steam derricks?<p><br><br>

The Mason looked great and sounded just as good. The steam crane you are talking about is lettered for its donor, The Washington Terminal Company.<br>
