Actually I would love to see a "Trench" engine at the museum, AFTER #9 & #11 is done.  Would make for an interesting piece for WWI / II reenactments.

There is actually been some talk of a WWI reenactment at the museum with the guys from the 14th Engineers (Narrow Gauge).  It's in the Museum discussion, but there are a lot of good video and some photos of the little 2-6-2T engines that the US Army used.
