Indiana Museum Tests Steam Locomotive
The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum conducted test runs last week with 0-4-4T Bock Lumber Company No. 1.
Video of the test runs was posted online at the museum’s Facebook page.
The museum said that as crews become certified on the locomotive it will announce the dates of public steam runs.
The steamer was built in 1908 by Baldwin Locomotive Works and is the only operating example of a standard gauge Forney-type in North America.
The Forney design has two powered leading axles followed by two unpowered axles in a trailing truck that supports the weight of the water tank and fuel bunker.
The museum is in North Judson, Indiana, and offers train rides on Saturdays in the summer and fall. by csanders429

Go to < Home-News and Events > at Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum to see a photo of Bock Lumber No.1
It is a posed shot inside the shop, but she sure is a beauty.
I would like to see a side or 3/4 view of the loco sometime.
