Doesn't it need a complete overhaul to run again?

That gives them Three Steam Locomotives now with the NKP 587 from Noblesville and the Burk from the KRM.

Two Steam locomotives of their own, one still awaiting rebuild for/from her current owners.

IMHO, that Corman loco needs a better paint job. Really looks like a Chinese 2-10-2 with those red spokes...

Have to say it does get you attention. I wouldn't mind getting Pictures of it in that Paint Scheme. Some People like Steam and Diesel Locomotives that stand out instead of a Pain Paint Scheme. I know I do.

There was a joke there, guess it rode right over your head. The Corman loco IS a Chinese QJ steam engine

I caught on to it. That was why I posted what I did. I see you Caught on to what I said. But if you Think about it. Look at What all the Class 1 Railroads and Short Line Railroads are doing with Painting Heritage Locomotives. I think we call it History Repeating Its self in a round about way. Same should go with the Steam Locomotives.

Attached is a photo I took January 13, 2008 when the RJ Corman QJ arrived in Lexington, Ky. from China.
