Remarks & Notes 
Glenbrook ready for her close-up. Restored to her 1875 appearance about as accurately as humanly possible, the little narrow-gauge Glenbrook really shows off her ornate look in the low-angle February sun. The paint scheme you see was thoroughly researched by the restoration team, both from Baldwin records, and from actual paint traces found on the machine itself. This scheme was apparently a pretty standard one for narrow gauge Baldwins being delivered in the mid-1870s. If there is something that just doesn't look right to you, it is probably the fact that you don't see a railroad name on her tender. Apparently, she never sported one. While I don't know for sure why, my personal speculation is that the company name (Carson & Tahoe Lumber & Fluming Company) just wouldn't fit in the designated spot on the sides of the tender.

One interesting feature that may not be obvious is that Glenbrook sports probably the only operational cross-head pump that I have ever seen on any restored locomotive in the US. Before the advent of injectors, cross-head pumps were the primary means of pumping water from the tender into the pressurized boilers of steam locomotives. Of course, one major draw-back of such pumps was that the locomotive had to be in motion to put water into the boiler....meaning that standing in a station or yard for long periods of time was not a good thing. For this reason, Glenbrook has a cross-head pump on the Engineer's side, and an injector on the Fireman's side.
