I guess YW19 must be in good condition and complete, if both Jerry and Dave were bidding near $400,000 for her especially with the cost to ship cross country to Ct if Dave won the bid.

I believe that this is the first Mikado in the AOS collection.

Looks like AOS bought lien ridden Yreka Western #19.

A No.1 to Sugar Creek.

Well of course AOS bought it... Because why wouldn't they? Kudos to them though for putting another at-risk engine in a safe home.

It wasn't at risk. Two very good homes were in the running for it.

Never would have expected it to end up in the Midwest, but this is great news.

Willis Kyle offered me student trips on her in July of 1976 and the offer of a job. I did two days on the 19, but I was leery of leaving my current job even though it would have been fun to go booming. The lumber market crashed within a short time and the OP&E in Cottage Grove went belly up. Such is fate.

#19 made its last trip to Montague yesterday, from there it will be loaded on a flatcar and travel to Ohio:

I was traveling from California to Oregon today, March 17th, and drove over to Montague. #18 was loaded on a flatcar. This is a telephoto view taken from the public main street of town using my 12-year old digital "point and shoot" camera.

The car initials "KRL" stands for Kasgro Rail Lines. Kasgro Rail Corporation is a provider of heavy duty flat cars.

It begs the question 'Which steamers are currently on the to be restored to operation list?' I'm curious about the potential for the Berkshire and Decapod to see steam in the near future. It seems JJJ is slowly checking off wheel arrangements to add to his collection. Kudos to him for achieving what most groups never achieved in steam preservation!

JJJ has that rare combination in railroad circles that makes things happen--passion and deep pockets

I would love to see the Woodward Iron 41 restored! I have watched it for years sitting out at Mid-Continent, and was greatly heartened to learn that AOS had purchased it. That said, it makes me wonder why the GTW 6325 seems to have fallen from a priority. The U3B's were some of the finest looking 4-8-4's ever. ($.02) I would love to have an opportunity to visit the place some day.

since JJ doesn't own a railroad anymore, he has no place to run anymore, besides 1293 running on Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railway occasionally.

The Age of Steam Roundhouse in Sugarcreek, Ohio, has sent to the website known as steamlocomotive.com a list of updated and corrected information about the 18 steam locomotives (and one compressed-air loco) in the collection of Jerry Jacobson. When posted on that website, this brief bit of information should put to rest the rumors and incorrect speculation as seen on this forum about the current status of Jerry's steam locomotives. All of his steam locomotives are housed safely and dry inside the AoSRH buildings.

For the past seven years, the construction progress of the AoSRH facilities and historic railroad rolling stock in Jerry Jacobson's collection has been documented in words and photos on our website, [url]www.ageofsteamroundhouse.com[/url] . Please refer to the AoSRH website to see our mission statement, past history, current status and future plans for the Age of Steam Roundhouse. Answers to most of your questions can be found on our website.

While visiting the AoSRH website, be sure to see the information that has been posted about our Saturday-only, pre-arranged group tours. AoSRH employees and volunteers have been conducting such warm-weather, May-October tours for the past five years, and are preparing for another six-month season of entertaining and educating groups of curious people. We are not set up to handle individuals or unannounced walk-ins -- for safety all tour-takers must be in a pre-scheduled group. AoSRH staff members are bending-over backward to accommodate those people who want to come to Sugarcreek to see this magnificent structure and the railroad collection inside. Use the link on our website to contact us about arranging a group tour.

Keep in mind that since Jerry Jacobson no longer owns the neighboring railroad line, the Age of Steam Roundhouse will not be operating any sort of public excursion trains on those tracks. However, we'd be happy to host your group for a Saturday tour.
