so during a random search I came across this website. I guess this crew from indiana restored this lokie. Click on the tabs on the side for the rest of the pics on the website, I see our old friend Bauman:s scrap yard had part in this at one time...like usual http://gramlinglocomotiveworks.com/126Restore.html

Sorry to hijack your thread Eric but it has to do with your topic. This Friday-Sunday June 19-21 at the Scranton Trolley Museum. Here is some info from Endless Mountains Rails Facebook page. Don't go to their website, it's not updated.

"For three days, June 19-21, Flagg Coal Company 75, a 1930 steam locomotive built in Wilkes Barre by the Vulcan Iron Works, will operate in downtown Scranton. Not many people realize that steam locomotives were actually constructed in Northeastern Pennsylvania, by Vulcan in Wilkes-Barre as well as the Dickson Locomotive Works in Scranton.
On Saturday June 19th the Vulcan will be on public display at Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton. This display will coincide with “Arts on Fireâ€

Actually the owner of that site listed above is the one who owns the flag coal locomotive. You'll see pictures of its restoration on that site. As it has been a few years since they updated their site, I wonder if they ever finished this locomotive? I guess he didn't bring it to steam town so he may not have, but I'd be curious.

Did anyone go to steam town to look at the flag coal locomotive?
