It has been waiting on dedicatable shop space. Last plan was as soon as 56 was done, it could move there.

No. 10 will be fine to handle trains to Alna Center and Top of the Mountain. It proved its mettle for a number of years before No. 9 came into use. On dates when no Trout Brook services are scheduled, No. 10 will do the trick at less cost than No. 9 or No. 11, in my opinion.

Yes, the Trainmaster is eager to get #10 back on the roster for precisely the reason Wayne stated; it is ideal for a 3-car "short turn" train for events at SeaLyon Farm / Top of Mountain.

i always found 10’s cab to be much roomier making for a very pleasant cab ride experience.

Funny how 10's cab always seemed rather cramped to me, but 9's always seemed pretty roomy.  Until the restoration, then I was surprised how unroomy it was.

if I recall correctly, you can sit on the window sill in No. 10's cab. That makes a big difference as you can't sit on the sill in 9. Also if you're on the tall side you have to stoop slightly to stick your head out the window so you have to be either inside or out.
And, the brake wheel in 9 is in the way, and now the vacuum brake stand is there on the engineer's side.
