That is probably the nicest it has looked in at least 20 years!

Here is a video that shows some of the cosmetic restoration of Mississippian #76 and provides some additional details (including the tender being swapped out).

Here is also a link that discusses the acquisition and dedication of Mississippian #76 (now Baltimore & Ohio #476) and shows a photo of the completed locomotive.

I made the 110 mile trip from my home in Indiana County, PA to the Oakland MD Museum yesterday. #476 is much more complete now. The cab windows and some exterior plumbing are the only major details missing. I took several photos and posted them here:

Bill -

Thanks for posting the photos. The Oakland folks did an extremely nice job of using 2-8-0 # 76 as a "stand-in" Baltimore and Ohio steam locomotive. Tastefully done!
