At the risk of starting a forest fire, here is a Google Drive link for six images I took of ex-CNR 46, at Valle Jonction, Quebec. The group which owns 46 is not looking to sell the locomotive, however a representative of the organization told me, about four years ago, they would not necessarily overlook a substantial offer for the locomotive. This may have changed. The rail line it is linked to will require replacement of missing sections to move the steamer over rail. Most likely, some heavy trucking would be required.

Not too shabby of a shape... 47 is looks to be about in that visual shape (although the boiler could look like the surface of the moon under that jacket, who knows)... Either way, I still believe that these X10s are an excellent size for shortline excursions.

An engine (Baltics)that is designed to go forward/reverse equally well, that would work very well for short range trips, that has the power to pull several coaches, that is unique in service, well what's not to like. I can't see a 2-8-0 that was designed to push long trains up the grade from Bartlett, NH being at home on local short trips with a lot of reverse moves.
If an 0-6-0 can do local trips on the main line, so can the 47. In my opinion it would be a great engine for the shorter trips.

Wasn't there a wye at one time at the summit of the grade out of Scranton to turn the Lackawanna helper engines?


I've thought about this before, looking along the ROW via Google Maps to see where a wye could be built, and spotted something interesting shortly before Gouldsboro that may answer your question.

That's got to be the one! The question is, how far off the ROW do they own? Could they purchase that small chunk of land if they don't own it?

I liked the coal loading facility at 0:32 to 0:36 as well.
