You kind of missed the point with your last comment "ifbeing preserved at home meant it would have been scrapped." I think we can all agree that an engine saved is a good thing no matter where it ends up, but the point Jim was trying to make was that TODAY, in 1999, it may be in the best interest of teh railfan/preservationist community to return some historic pieces to their home regions. How many of you in the preservationist communtiy (I mean those of you who are museum members) think that it is feasible for museums to trade equipment?

Possession is not entirely rational. Many museums will insist until the day some piece of equipment rusts apart that they were the best caretaker for it. The more enlightened approach is trade or sell what is not important or can never be truly cared for. That's not a popular notion with "gotta have it" railfans.<p><br>
