Steam Locomotive #1385
Posted October 19, 2015, by J.R. Manning

On a recent stop (October 2015) at the Mid Continent Railway Museum, I inquired about the progress of the restoration project. The locomotive is currently off site for machining.

The original tender, was beyond hope. A new tender was constructed on the original chassis, which is currently on display.
