I wonder if they'll get their CNW steamer up to TC once they complete the restoration, it's much lighter than the 1225
i'm so fresh, they call me fabreeze

Has the #1225 ever visited TC? Or have the tracks always been that poor?

It was at this moment that the hijacking of this thread took place. :lol: :lol:

Oh yes. :lol:

(Although, I should have rephrased my original question to say "any extremely heavy steamer" instead of "the #1225").

An occasional hijacking is good once in a while.

There are photos on the internet of stuck steam locomotives on the GR&I north of Manton. What was the heaviest?

I would guess the N class 2-10-2s were the heaviest steam to operate north of GR on the PRR, based on other comments in this thread.
