I heard about his interest from the curator in a recent visit, but do not know his name.  I am no expert in the restoration of steam locomotives, #2 got a cosmetic restoration in the early 90s after sitting as a derelict on Coronado Mountain with two of her sisters for 67 years.  She is approximately 120 years old.  Doesn't sound too promising without complete rebuilding, new boiler, new everything.  Of course it can be done, it comes down to time and money...

Another challenge...where to run it?

Of course, I would love nothing more than to see...and hear...her run again.
