#2: Army 2-8-0 #612, currently under cosmetic restoration. Seeing this engine held a special level of significance for me, because my grandfather was a conductor in a Transportation Corps at Ft. Eustis, and he conducted on this engine.

#3: The prow for #5550. In the words of Jason: "This thing is a fabricator's nightmare. There's not a straight line on it anywhere!"

Seems to me that Dwight Winkey was actively involved in the railroad operations at Ft. Eustis during his stent in the Army.

Also, I noticed on the first page of this link:

A copy of the guy in video.

He visits the WW&F regularly and is always taking photos while he is there.  I am terrible with names so can't provide it.  His picture is located on the first page of this thread with the date of December 27, 2012.

Bill, you mean either Kevin Madore or Stephen Hussar.  I notice Ed's on the first page of this thread too, but Ed doesn't take a lot of photos so you probably don't mean him.

That is Kevin Madore.

James,

I knew it wasn't Stephen.  Alas, as soon as I read Kevin, I remember, oh yeah...  but any more I say that a lot....

Tennessee Valley Railroad, Loco 630. Last time I was here, the 610 was in operation.



The General. Kennesaw, Ga. The place has completely changed around the locomotive, since I last saw it 25 years ago.

I'm guessing Mike was doing a little Southern valve gear research for a WW&F Prairie. I saw 630's sister, #722, a few times during my Southern years. Good sturdy engines.

I was in Tucson, AZ for a conference last week, and when I had a free day on Thursday I took a 350-mile side trip to Clifton, AZ to see some of the remains the Coronado RR. This little 20-inch gauge copper-mining line was one of the earliest railroads in that state, dating to 1879.

Here I am with Coronado RR No. 8, a Porter 0-4-4T built in 1897 (C/N 1735), on display near the former Arizona & New Mexico Ry/El Paso & Southwestern RR/Southern Pacific depot on AZ Highway 191 in Clifton.  (The AZ & NM was originally narrow gauge as well, but 3' gauge rather than 20".)

Philip,
I believe you have to be wearing WW&F apparel to post on this page... 😉

Due to a variety of circumstances, we ran the Sandy River Railbus #4 at BRV today. Linda had been telling me how much she wanted the chance to ride in it, so as soon as it was confirmed- I told her to come on down. She rode once up front with me at the controls, and sampled a variety of other seating locations. She had such a blast that I couldn't help but share this. I think her face says everything!

A future visit to the WW&F would be quite a treat.  Photographers special maybe?
