    Operating, maybe, but probably requires an FRA full boiler rebuild based on the time it's sat, and the expense of that task is probably why it's still static... :( I mean, what's an FRA boiler inspection/rebuild and certification cost today? It can't be cheap, and facilities that do that sort of work are very few and far between. Doesn't make it any less sad, though that the fine steed is still parked.

    That would be the calf of a TR2. Based on the NW2.

    Sure, no doubt it'd be expensive to get 610 back on the road, but I'm guessing it'd still cost less than the ground-up restorations of "new" steam locomotives in today's headlines. Thankfully it looks like the 610 is stored in a shed out of the weather. It really hurts to see even cosmetically restored equipment rapidly ruined by sitting outdoors.

    Similar to the Great Northern's NW-5s. Light branch use.

    From 06/09/1985 at Cornelia, GA. The track to the left was once the connection with the storied Tallulah Falls Railroad, a twisty 58 mile line that wound its way north through rugged country to Franklin, NC. It entered bankruptcy in 1923 and somehow hung on until 1961.

    Have heard this RR name somewhere in my past. Is there a good source of info somewhere on the 'Net?
