    I have been an interested party in the SLSF for two years now. Hailing from St. Louis, I get real close to 1522 and 0-6-0 #3695 often, as I volunteer at STL Museum of Transport. 3695 is my favorite Frisco steamer, and I love 0-6-0's and 0-8-0's, but don't shy from large or small road power. As long as it's steam, I'm there!

    Happy to be of any help,

    Welcome to! It's a good group indeed. I'm also in StL and am a NMOT/TMA member, have been for years. Glad to hear of your affection for SLSF/Scullin 3695; me too. I have been on the museum's case now and then through the years that 3695 deserves much better care and prominence. NMOT doesn't have many small switcher types, the engine has a long history with two fallen flag St Louis companies, and it is good looking. Why not give it some TLC rather than let it sit there and rot!

    I asked about leasing or borrowing 3695, moving her out here to Pacific where I would head up a cosmetic restoration and display her at our little railroad park. Didn't get much enthusiasm from the MOT. I'm getting too old for this.
