Anybody have a cool million to spare? We'd love to put more time and energy into NKP 384. We do accept donations at our website at http://lsra.org/nbsprestore-the-nkp-384.html.

Hello!

My name is Erich Diebold, and I am a volunteer at the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway as diesel and steam crew. I am also involved with the Ohio Railway Museum and spend some time with the steam thresher/traction engine shows during the summer.

We began restoration of our ex. Beechbottom Power Co. #3 in 2001 and restoration was completed in May 2015. We began our inaugural runs in October 2015. However between 2016 and October 2017, #3 did not run due to technical issues, however by mid 2018 we began running #3 on some of our regular trains.

#3 is classified as a 6-28-D, 331 0-6-0 Baldwin switcher, and was used for hauling in loaded coal cars at a powerhouse owned by Beechbottom Power Company in Brooke County, West Virginia. The ash from the power house would then be dumped in a specific location outside of the power house. The boiler of #3 as I was told in its early years was originally supposed to be put onto a chassis for a Grand Trunk Western steam locomotive.

You can visit our website at hvsry.org or look up Hocking Valley Scenic Railway on our Facebook page, Twitter and on Instagram for our upcoming special events. Hope to see you on our steam trains this year.
