I came across some pictures of an ex-new-Edaville loco in service at the Franfurter Feldbahnmuseum in Germany. The Jung 0-6-2 is the black/green/red loco named "Jacobi" that you see about halfway through the first group of pictures here:
http://www.feldbahn-ffm.de/Seiten/Bildergalerien/bildergalerien.htm

This loco was built in 1906, went from Germany to San Francisco in 1973, to Chicago in 1985, and spent the 90s at Edaville. I recall reading somewhere that it was never fired up at Edaville due to its boiler construction being illegal in Mass., and in 1998 it went back to Germany.

The Feldbahnmuseum is a volunteer organization that has a bunch of nice restored 600 mm equipment (and some in rough shape) that they run in some parkland in Frankfurt.

Some pictures I took from my visits are here:

My father helped repatriate our No.14 Jacobi. http://www.thorsteamworld.com/photos/pv.asp?pid=2295

Since she returned in 1998 she has had a complete restoration and runs like a top. In 2006 she made a field trip to a 2ft gauge railroad on the border to Poland and she sounded great running through the woods with a heavy train. As I expand my website I will post more pictures. http://www.thorsteamworld.com/photos/pbr.asp?road=FFM

Feel free to contact me if you have questions about our museum collection or history, I am there about 5 times a year to help with bigger festivals, like Teddy Bear Day http://www.thorsteamworld.com/photos/pbg.asp?ID=38.

cheers
