Thanks, Aaron.

At Electric City, Third Avenue (NY) (TARS) 651 is a Brill double truck open car. The carbody is in the Museum in Scranton; we're working on the Brill 22E trucks.

It also ran in Wildwood NJ for Five Mile Beach Electric Railway as their 24.

Western Coal & Coke #1 appears on Mid-Continent's website as a restoration project. Anyone have better info on it?

Same with SP SW1 1006 at Orange Empire. Is it done?

Regarding the B&LE 2-10-4, so far I'm considering it an acquisition. Haven't read anything yet that says they've started the restoration. I know that sounds picky, but I have to draw the line somewhere. Doubtless it will migrate to the active list soon.

Thanks to those who responded with other projects. Much appreciated and please keep them coming. Once I figure out how to do it, this list will be displayed on the HRA website and updated as things change.

I did just want to add that AOSR has gotten the tender already. Don’t have to put it on there but I think this Facebook post they added shows they’re working on it already

At the Strasburg Rail Road, our capital projects in 2019 include:

#475 1472 SDI, and replaced one driving wheel center.

New concrete floor in the North Car Shop.

Rehab of J Tower.

Plymouth locomotive #1 returned to service with new clutch plates (made in house), and frame repairs.

Rehab of the water tower, including blasting and new paint on the exterior and new epoxy on the interior.

Along with several less sexy expenditures.

To Aaron F, re: Stewartstown:
Does the ancient bridge need work before trains can cross it? Any idea of the timeline?

The bridge is passable right now! The only repair work required was tie replacement, and we finished that project a couple months ago. The bridge in question (an 1870s Iron Bridge built for the Northern Central) was actually replaced by a girder bridge many years ago. The original Iron Bridge trusses are still in place, but they provide no support anymore and are purely decorative.
