Thanks Rusty. I saw the train in Northern Calif. sitting on a siding. No engines in sight so I thought it was an old Doodlebug or something. Thanks for the info. Hope the engineer pushing the train had a mask on. Don

Wow guys, lots of great pictures of the real deal. I took a few pictures of the RJ Corman diesel at the Clarksville Station, a small city park where folks can visit and get railroad memorabilia, and picnic. It’s not very popular now. 3058C7B6-01FF-4835-B674-A5D0CC57A21D57ABB364-B5D9-465B-9949-427112C404086B5A765B-3E9A-4DB1-8AC1-39EED74EF89D0D5F33B4-CA40-4727-85B2-4CDB27621829E897E294-316F-40D4-A4A1-8E851A021171BFD50236-D9BA-49C6-8A7B-DB5D0098182020DFA6C8-B3C0-4F6C-BA9C-560775ADB6FC28709904-FBF3-42BC-A609-14489AFF13C5D6A45DCD-E9E7-42D2-9AD3-E03344AFC7C16A0E8E89-02B1-454C-85DB-C9EA75A16C1CA3845E26-E4BA-4CF3-A19F-1FF119AC3C82A291535C-63BA-4C9D-B809-341B89B7D4106F2C9725-5CDB-4779-A147-D78D05AE9F2BD14FAA8A-87A4-42B9-A884-240481F46A2E

These are of a local short line RR that services a nearby industrial park. The line runs behind my house, and I took advantage of a long process of hooking up to a cut of tank cars that were stored on a siding.

Growing old is so much more fun than the only alternative.

These sat for months last summer.  I drove by all the time on the way to the golf course.  Might give you some weathering or siding ideas...

Two pictures of the same engine at two different times. First picture, Southern 604 (Buffalo Creek & Gauley #4) under steam in the early 90's at NC Transportation Museum in Spencer. The second, still at Spencer in December 2008, is the chassis and running gear. The engine was taken apart for a major over haul and was not put back together. It was sold to Durbin & Greenbrier Valley RR in 2015. I can't find anymore information on it's current condition.

From what I just searched it looks like it is still in the plans to be restored by the D&GVRR. I had thought I found it elsewhere, but that was the trade off that was renumbered 604 which is on static display at NC, I think they call it 542 in the search(even though it's renumbered 604?) if I read all that right.
