2124 is not going to run soon, if ever again. I thought this had been put to bed. Bring 2100 back and then you might have something. I assume you have the bucks to cover this renovation?


Na, Bring 2101 back in Chessie Colors with her original tender behind 2100 currently. Just swap them back. The NYC water car might be on loan for 100 years. But, Then maybe the current care takers would rather have it out of their hair so they can work on other artifacts that need work.

Anything certainly is possible.

OH, NO-O-O!!

Not the return of the locomotive that was attacked by--the EASTER BUNNY!!

Actually, it was that yellow and blue and red locomotive that introduced me to main line steam, up the New River no less. . .and I've never been the same since!!

By the way, I recall the consist was almost all heavyweight stuff, including a lot of Reading and Central of New Jersey cars. I wonder how much of the consist is still around today?

As I understand it the majority of the cars were loaned from different sources. I believe scrap is the fate of the majority of the cars. At least that is what I heard floated around another discussion the passenger cars used.

Has this gotten away from the CNR steam program subject heading?
