Re: Narrow Gauge engine...?

I think a small display at Colfax along I-80 makes much sense, and
perhaps the current NCNG museum would participate (contribute a photo
display?). However, they have invested many years and gallons of
sweat to get their set-up going as it is. Now, if you could secure a
good mile or three of NCNG right-of way from a convenient station
location in Colfax, I think you would be having much to discuss with
these folks. I am not certain, but it may be difficult to lay much
more track where they are located presently. Several museums operate
with dual locations, it might be possible with this one if it has the
manpower (not right now, obviously). An operating steam locomotive
will definitely help to create the interest in the public and
volunteers, but as you found, they are not easy to come by. The
Kahului locomotive is apparently a fine engine, and while not cheap,
is worth the price.
