I know some of you will recognize this locomotive.  It was on display in Colorado Springs but was manufactured in the Baldwin plant in Essington, PA about 5 miles from where I lived.  It was gone last time I was down that way.

DR&G 168 I think and from what I understand it is undergoing a full restoration to return to working order.

Nice. Am always intrigued by the engineering aspect that goes into locomotives.

Yeap, it got moved to be repaired. If I remember correctly, it will not return to this spot.


Thanks, Dennis.

Thank you for the comments.

I kinda thought Dennis would know but Jim, you impressed me.  

Herman, I agree how amazing that was and especially that it was built over 130 years ago.

The reason it was moved is because it is being restored to running order and will run on the Cumbres and Toltec railroad between CO and NM.
