About three years ago, the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania announced that they were planning on building a roundhouse for most of the PRR equipment that is outside. They had already done some planning and consulting. I believe that the locomotives that are slated for placement in this building are the PRR M1b 6755, the PRR K4 3750, and others. These locomotives, along with the museums largest locomotive, the NKP 757, the odd ball, have been out in the elements for some time. To get them inside a structure would at least halt/slow further deterioration until work can be done on them.
But the main point here is, has any progress been made on constructing the roundhouse? I believe that they have the funding and the construction has been approved by the township. I have looked all over the internet and have found no progress reports or photographs. So to reiterate, has anyone been to the museum and can report any progress that has been made on the roundhouse? Has any one heard anything? Be careful when responding to that second question.
Here is the link to the museum site announcing the project.
And from the text, the locomotives to be placed inside:
PRR M1b No. 6755, L1 No. 520, K4s No. 3750, E6s No. 460, B6sb No. 1670 and H10s No. 7688.
The article said that it was to be completed by the end of last year....
