I am just curious with this, but how many steamers are actually on the property? I can think of the 37, the 31, the 972, the 89, the 90, the 475, the 39, and the 1187. Are there any I missed?

You are missing Brooklyn Eastern District Terminal No. 15 (Thomas).

Not sure if it is still being rebuilt, but Rio Grande Southern RR No. 20 is at Strasburg.

Don't forget about the little 15" gauge puffer belly...

Walt Disney World Railroad #1 (Walter E. Disney) until reassembled and returned. Then they'll send up #3 (Roger Broggie) for overhaul and installation of computer safety systems.

There are:

Belonging to us:
Thomas
#3 Cagney
#9 Cagney
#31
#89
#90
#475
#972
#1187

Belonging to others:
DCC #1 (Railroad Museum of Long Island)
RGS #20 (Colorado Railroad Museum)
PLC #37 (Timber Heritage Asso.)

Regarding LIRR #39, all that is here is the boiler (awaiting funding). The rest of the engine is at the RRMLI.

In addition, our shops are currently working on bits and pieces of fourteen other locomotives, ranging from boiler check valves to valve gear parts to driving wheels to firebox sheets.

What is the DCC #1? Not part of RMLI, unless it is being added to their website.

It’s their H.K. Porter #1, formerly used at the Defiance Coal Company in New Mexico: http://rmli.org/our-collection/h-k-port ... ocomotive/

I thought it was already back at the RMLI. Thanks for further clarification.

She's complete and virtually ready (we want to test steam up one more time) to return once they arrange to pick her up.

Kelly, do you still have the second Cagney (No. 11)?

That's true! Out of sight, out of mind.

Kelly, the 37 has been on your property for quite awhile and I think that is largely
because of the work is done during light periods for a better price.

Would you hazard a guess as to when she might return to CA? Thanks for any help.

At some point after #1309 runs. Note, we do not have any photo charter tickets on sale.

Also, #37 was on hold for quite some time while THA was concentrating on moving its collection to new quarters, and doing building repair at the current site. At this point, they do have funding for us, and though we are very busy I am constantly nagging the folks in charge of shop logistics to free someone up to work on her.

Also, I was reminded (twice) that our second Cagney is #9, not #11.
