Really glad to see this loco being rebuilt.   It was purchased by one Charlie Morrow in the late 1950's and moved to what was the Snoqualmie Railroad Museum, a pretty down at the heels operation when I was a regular visitor in the 1960's.

The Skookum sat, disassembled, in the weeds for decades.

The Snoqualmie museum is now the Northwest Railway Museum and seems to be much better funded and organized than when Charlie was the driving force.
