Some very recent video clips of Sierra 3:

Man, that engine looks small--been spending too much time around C&O power, I guess. Check out the return to service ceremony, with an archway of water supplied by vintage hand-pumped fire engines--the sort of thing Walt Disney and Ward Kimball would have revelled in.

Thanks for assembling that collection! The "Three-Spot's" a sweetheart for sure.

Having grown up in the 60s, this locomotive was all over TV on shows like "Petticoat Junction" and "Iron Horse". Dolled up as she was, she still looked sweet with a diamond stack and oil lamp and wood stacked on the tender. It's been on my "bucket list" to see this little gal run. I would really love to get some pics of her running with a vintage freight or mixed consist in good light.

Anybody else up for a photo charter? :o)
