ENGINE 119 is very nice Loco. LIKE. Well worth restoring especially as petroleum prices are spiraling out of control. Tone.

MaryAlice on September 3, 2010

Greetings, TONE, and thank you for your visit. Yes indeed, Engine 119 is quite a gem, isn't she? Her chances for restoration aren't looking too swell right now, but I'll let you know if things change in the near future.

Thank you so much for visiting, and for your appreciation of this fine locomotive.

All the best from the USA,

Beautiful photo MaryAlice! I see you've got some great shots of old railroads. I found your photo while using Google maps to trace the route of what I now know is the former "M" line. With Google Maps & Street View I've been able to explore abandoned lines from home. This was the first time I ran across a steam locomotive sitting in a field. lol

I live down in Columbus, GA, but I once lived in the UK for over a year. It's obvious you love trains as much as I do, so you should add Britain's National Railway Museum in York to your list of must-sees. It'll blow your mind. :)

Greetings, Matt, Somehow I completely missed your comment above. I am so sorry. Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoying this wonderful old Steam locomotive in the field! Yeah, I know its crazy! How neat that you were able to find it on Google Maps though. Everything is possible in today's advanced world! Yes, I do enjoy tracks and old trains. I am eager to go to the site you've provided, and thank you in advance for the tip! I hope you're enjoying this splendid weather, and I'll look forward to talking to you again soon! :)

Very best regards from Yatesville,

Mary Alice
