1361 at Bay Head Junction, NJ – 1955

Classic Trains magazine’s In Search of Steam – Volume III: 1955 arrived in my mailbox today.  I found that it contains a photo of 1361’s front end, shot in Bay Head Junction by Philip R. Hastings.  Nice surprise.

This is what she looked like when I last saw her in May of 2000, at Steamtown.

1361's Boiler, Steamtown, 2000

I just read this – The boiler was recently moved from Steamtown to the East Broad Top Railroad shops in Orbisonia, PA where it is awaiting inspection. Many parts, including the cab and drivers, sit inside a building nearby on museum property.  – July 10, 2011

I also found a photo of the tender, at the Railroaders Memorial Museum, Altoona, PA.  That and other 1361 photos can be seen at Railpictures.
