I was just through Durango, CO where a group is restoring a Consol the was a display piece in the park by the river that once was the DRGW stockpens.  They have @ $500K in to her in materials and subcontractor services and are about done.  They will run her on the D&S and the C&T, likely this fall.  They spent $20K alone to have a copy made of the firebox door.

BTW, the C&T "friends" group is making big progress restoring some of their equipment inventory.

A few years ago I passed through Snoqualamie, WA where there is/was a bunch of logging era steamers and eqpt moldering on sidings by the road.  Shame there isn't a master website to gather up all the projects/orphans/ lost and founds, etc

www.steamlocomotive.com has a list of all known remaining steam locomotives in the U.S., where they are, and, to some degree, the condition.  This includes locomotives in junk yards, in collapsed tunnels, and in rivers.

How about WM 202 a 4-6-2 in Hagerstown, Md.  One of two (as I recall) surviving WM steam.  The other is the Shay no. 6 on the CASS in WVa.

Back in the '80's a local group had put a fair amount of work into the 202, going so far as to have the boiler hydroed.  Not sure what happened, though I'm sure money had something to do with it.  I have also heard that there seems to be some question about who actually owns the loco--the City or CSX.  It was apparently donated to "the children of Hagerstown", which in today's legal-eagle world means almost nothing.  It would be great, though, if they could get her running out on the WMSR some day!
