"Emma Nevada" was outshopped by Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1881.  Named "Sidney Dillon" and numbered "2", the Mogul 2-6-0 was operated in the desert for 57 years by the Nevada Central Railroad.  Upon abandonment in 1938 the engine was purchased by Disney animator Ward Kimball.  It was restored and operated on a short section of track in his San Gabriel, California orange grove as part of his "Grizzly Flats Railroad".  Ward and his family donated the engine and rolling stock to the Orange Empire Railway Museum.  The engine is undergoing extensive restoration to return it to operating condition.  I've attached a photo of the "Emma Nevada" as  she appears today and you'll be able to see what a remarkable job Bachmann has done with the "G" Scale re-creation.  A historic engine being brought back to life by the Museum and faithfully modeled by Bachmann.

Beware the Ides of August!  The "Bachmann August 2016 Newsletter" didn't list the new 2-6-0.

Here in Texas, summer is over when we stop having to run the AC over 12/18 hours (depending on your exact location) a day. Which could be in September, October or even possible late August (but very, very seldom) so the release date is actually tied to our AC bill.  Cheesy

Oh, it's a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn't got time for the waiting game!

The colorful paint schemes look wonderful.....but might we see a good ol' basic black sometime in the future?....would certainly fit better into my era.

thanks.
