Thanks Kevin and all for the info. What is happening with 1309, LIRR 35 & 39, 1361?
So 1309 is being restored by the WMSR in Cumberland, MD / Ridgeley, WV and will likely see excursion service on that line between Cumberland and Frostburg. However, that's not really a "mainline" anymore in the same sense as the others, since WMSR is a tourist railroad only,
There was announcement not too long ago about PRR 1361. They are bringing in some more knowledgeable folks from the sounds of it, and plan to have it restored with a new boiler. I don't know what their intent is after that as it seems they would have the same issues as others with lack of insurance and eventual need to obey the PTC rule.
