Well there is good news for the CB&Q 4-8-4 Northern #5631 that is on display here in Sheridan, Wyoming. They are going to save the engine and restore it as opposed to selling it. I have a couple of older posts on this page in regards to the story of how the city was trying to decide what to do with the engine. If you want to know more about this subject please read them as well. I am happy that they decided to spend the money and save it.

Bid Awarded for Steam Locomotive

Thanks everyone,
Randy

While out taking pictures today I swung by and took this picture of the in-progress restoration work taking place on the CB&Q 4-8-4 Northern #5631 engine.



I am very happy that the city of Sheridan decided to restore it instead of having it done away with.

Thanks,
Randy
