Grizzly Flats Railroad No. 2 "Emma Nevada" Restoration Progress

May 08, 2022 05:57PM
Since around 2014/'15, a dedicated group of volunteers at the Southern California Railway Museum (formally the Orange Empire Railway Museum) in Perris, CA, have slowly but surely been restoring former Walt Disney animator Ward Kimball's Grizzly Flats Railroad 2-6-0 No. 2 "Emma Nevada" (ex-Nevada Central Railroad No. 2 "Sidney Dillon") to operational condition.

Attached are several images from the Friends of the Emma Nevada's Facebook group that highlight the volunteers' progress (as of Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022).
