    Tamworth, 'straya.
    But you need that Sturm & Dillard to complete your set. And it's such a steal.

    Too bag it isn't the "Sturm & Drang" steam engine.

    Maybe some of my cousins down there could buy it, and drop a crate motor in there.

    I like this quote:

    "We’ve not done a great job of preserving it out there,” he said. “It’ll need a little bit of work done if someone takes it. A paint job is one thing, something like that."

    "Something like that" - New boiler maybe, before the existing one blows up?

    Nice little industrial saddle tank, built by Baldwin? I''m not too hot on US locos.

    I'm thinking ALCO which had a number of smaller subsidiaries and offered locos in their catalog that looked basically like this, Baldwin is also a possibility, as it was a pretty standard type for industrial applications.

    Could it be a Porter? Whew, I'm glad I have way too many hobbies or else this would be tempting. Doesn't look like a narrow gauge either.

    Porter was my other thought; could be any of these as that industrial tank 0-6-0 was as standard as a RCA 2x 6l6 circuit

    Yep I'd have that beauty in my backyard at the drop of a hat too. :)

    I'm a complete anorak when it comes to steam trains. I was recently watching an old British series of TV programs they made in the late 50's early 60's called 'railway roundabout' about Steam trains particularly about some USA dock shunting engines which were bought from the US after the war as government surplus.

    Played a Labor Day gig a couple years ago out in Bridgeport....the folks had a spectacular home on a bluff overlooking the lake. They actually had a number of buildings on this large property, one of which was a beautiful old railroad caboose that had been restored and converted into a guest house. Maybe that guy would want this to go with his caboose?

    I prefer the diesel-electrics, with the GP-35 being my favorite.

    C'mon, man. Steam rules. You ever been to one of them steam shows? I get all riled up when those ol' thrashing machines fire up run by a steam tractor with a mile long belt slapping around. The noise alone is to die for.

    Diesel-Electric....phhhttt. Have you no soul?:lol:

    Very cool. I'm not a railroad enthusiast, much, but I'd like to see as many steam locomotives preserved as possible. Magnificent things!
