Jock,
  We have talked about reproducing the photo during a work weekend. Not in Head Tide, but in the same town.

If you put the diamond stack back on #10, then it would be really more accurate.

I can wait for a few years until the tracks are back in the cut.  Then it would be wonderful to stage a before-after photo during the Annual Work Weekend.  What a poster that would make !!!!!!!!!!!

Fortunately the diamond stack from #10 is no where at Sheepscot any more.  I think we sold it to somebody.

I'm sure we could fabricate one temporarily just for the photo...

...then BURN it afterwards! ;)

I have seen photos of #10 with a diamond stack, so I presume it still exists somewhere?  ???

I agree, I don't like it when tourist lines put diamond stacks on engines that never had them. Like when the D&RGW put diamond stacks and big oil headlights on their K-28's in the '50's and '60's. I do like diamond stacks on engines that were actually built in the woodburning era.
