T&P #316 Debut (Texas State Railroad)
Author: Jason-Rose

Here is a short video of the highlights along with a few still shots. There are two longer videos and more photos on my website: RioGrandeExplorations.net

I'm really diggin' 316. Neat little locomotive with an impressive sound.

Little sister has problem pushing big brother and looses its grip on the rail!

Great Video, and the loco looks much better. Coaches look good too in fresh paint...

Someone has to fix that bell's air ringer though...lol. Has the bell stuck upside down more than should be in the last shots?

I'm personally waiting for Magma 7 to reappear...

Very nice photos and a great video! Glad you caught
her slipping. She's a sweet-lookin' locomotive!

The bell has no air ringer, only Robert, the fireman. For some reason the bell likes to stick, bottom up.

Great looking engine. I'm glad to see the Texas State Railroad painting a locomotive for it's original railroad. Is this the plan for future restorations?

All of the locomotives will ultimately be painted for one of their common carrier owners.

#300 will come back from its annual in February as Tremont and Gulf #28 (its only common carrier owner)

#400 will come back as Magma Arizona #7 (its last common carrier owner)

From what I am told, that will be early next year, subject to the vagaries of when they can finish her.

I don't know what it is, but steam engines love to catch you whistling for a crossing and slip while you're doing it. They have a sense of humor.
Engine looks and sounds great.

Hahaha...nice.

It has an air-ringer on it, just guess it's not in service.
