"Glenbrook" is back! The Nevada State Railroad Museum can now claim to have TWO, 1875-era, wood-burning locomotives that can operate under their own power. After years of painstaking restoration work by Chris DeWitt and his team, Carson & Tahoe Lumber & Fluming Company #1 "Glenbrook" emerged from the shops at the NSRM in 2015. This 3-ft. gauge locomotive operates on museum grounds during selected steam-up weekends each year. At the moment, she is unable to completely run the museum's main line loop because the dual-gauging of the museum's trackage is not yet complete....but it will be in the not-too-distant future. Still, the museum does have significant dual-gauge track and they also have a recently restored, narrow gauge log car for her to pull for demonstration purposes.
Interestingly, although this locomotive is a 2-6-0 Mogul type, she is approximately the same size as Dan Markoff's 4-4-0 Eureka & Palisade #4 "Eureka" and based on their builders numbers, it is believed that both engines were likely on the floor of the Baldwin erecting shops in the Philly area at the same time!
