Two Footers outside of the US / Re: NEW Baldwin 2-4-2-T

Yeah, wouldn't it be great if we could get the Brits to make the SRRL a new engine?

#1: WW&F #6. I cannot even describe how great this one is.
#2: SR&RL #18. A good looking engine, she should have been one that survived.
#3: SR&RL #10. Just a beautiful engine.
#4: SR&RL #17. Again, a perfect engine for a tourist line. #17, #18, and #9 are the ones that would be most viable.
#5: WW&F #4. Not the best looking engine, but she would be just perfect on today's WW&F.

I heard the Brecon Mountain Railway in Wales is building replicas of #10 and #23... It would be great if we could do something like that in the US....

Actually, it's an 1897 Baldwin 2-6-0 from Brazil. They are slowly building replicas of Sandy River 10 and Sandy River 23. They operate with a Baldwin 4-6-2 and a couple of smaller tank locos. I think they may also have one of those South African 2-8-2's. There has been some turmoil there over the last couple of years. I was in e-mail contact with the shop guy at BMR, but he's no longer there. Their web site hasn't been updated in some time.

Thats just awesome. I would hope that the SRRL museum over here could build a replica of #17, #21, or maybe #16? Anyone of the smaller engines (not like #23)

I've heard that the Brecon Mountain Railway had a 1897 2-6-2, built by Baldwin. Does anyone have a good photo of it? I was wondering if it was anything like our beloved WW&F #6.

I'm new here, and I was really wondering if there are any surviving pieces of any of the SRRL engines? That way if the Sandy River Railroad Park can find any, they can build a replica that at least has some parts of the original.

Thank god the fire didn't do too much damage to #7. I think if the MNG aren't going to run #8, they should at least put her on display in the museum til' they're ready to put her in service.

I think they should have the museum in Bridgton, and re-open the B&SR, as there is so much surviving equipment from that line.
