Heber Happenings II

7. the front truck
8. the Right side nose
9. Since she's a 4000 series loco, and the smallest of the fleet, of course she gets the
appropriate name: BIG BOY

Actually I am pretty sure its not a 70 tonner. Its a Baldwin built RS4TC1 built for the gov. The cab has a low profile so that it can be sent overseas and work in Europe. It looks great in that paint scheme though!

We have one of these at Railtown 1897 that came from the US Army. They are listed at 65 tons, but some have been ballasted to between 65 and 70 tons. Ours is around 65 tons.

The only thing that's missing is the reflectors.

And many years ago a US Army RS4TC #4700N actually ran on the Rio Grande narrow gauge lines. It was the only 3' gauge RS4TC and had a lower cab than the regular RS4TC's.

What 4700 could have been....

Paul, can you tell us where 4028 came from? and when? I want to keep this roster up to date:

Now that U. S. Army RS4TC 4028 has been repainted to Heber Valley Railroad 4028, I have added it to the listing of equipment at the Heber Valley Railroad (scroll to the bottom):

http://utahrails.net/utahrails/heber-equipment.php

I have also added a new LocoNotes page for all 74 of the Davenport RS4TC locomotives:

http://utahrails.net/loconotes/rs4tc.php

Since we now have two of these units here in Utah with their new owners (4023 at Chemical Lime in Tooele County, and 4028 at Heber Valley), this new web page will give me a place to keep updated as new or additional information becomes available.

The 4023 has not yet been rebuilt, 4028 has. They (Broken Arrow) where talking about rebuilding the engine a few years back. Then the two on the Moab branch.
