Re: Other venues?

May 23, 2012 07:40PM
There are other venues where Eureka can operate. Besides carrying a Form 4 Eureka also is licensed by the State of Nevada and is inspected by the State. She can and will appear within Nevada, such as at the Nevada state railroad museums in Carson City and Boulder City. There may well be others, but that is what is in the forseeable future. I should mention that means currently I go through two annual inspections:Nevada and the FRA. That adds up to a lot of effort each year just to take her out and operate a couple times each year.

I do hope to have her inspected as required by the FRA when the waiver does expire. It is a matter of when I can do it and whether it would be worthwhile to go through all the effort. I only do so because that is what is necessary to run her on FRA regulated railroads. If the public maintains its interest, then someday it will be done. However, it is an enormous amount of work, not only for the inspection, but just transporting it back and forth between Nevada and other states is a huge effort in time and money. Over the years I have transported the locomotive about 40 times. For those who have not had the experience you should try moving a locomotive at least once. It will give an appreciation for what goes into the process.

Perhaps the deciding factor will be whether the public wants to see her run. What is the consensus out there?
