Locomotive #2 Back On The Main Track

After a lot of hard work along with some blood, sweat, and tears our 1955 GE 65 ton center cab locomotive #2 is back to work pulling the passenger cars. Isn’t she purty?! You can see how it looked and read what we worked on this past winter.

Winter Project: Repair and Repaint Locomotive #2

Our major project for the Winter this year is to repair and repaint locomotive #2, our 1955 GE 65 ton center cab. The tear down of engine is already in process plus we are working on the inside of the cab. Gauges have been sent out to be certified and the entire instrument panel has already been restored. We are still in the mode of paint chip removal and hope to be painting the cab interior shortly. Look for further updates as we make more progress on our main passenger train motive power.

Locomotive #2 will be painted the same paint scheme but with the passenger coach red and crème instead of bright red and white.

Western Maryland 151 Restored To Original Colors

One of the projects the winter of 2008-09 was painting an ALCO S-6 locomotive.  It was bought new by Western Maryland in the 1950’s.  A group of men restored the engine to it’s original colors in six weeks.

Here is a before picture:
