PRR No. 1223 with Coaches by rlkitterman PRR No. 1223 with Coaches by rlkitterman
Pennsylvania Railroad D16-class steam engine 4-4-0 No. 1223 was built for passenger service around the turn of the century. Its display at the Pennsylvania Railroad Museum reflects its history, as it is shown pulling a train of wooden-bodied bogie coaches.

If only she didn't have that Belpaire firebox. Most of the locos there that have 'em can't run because of their firebox design (the operating PRR 643 at William's Grove of which I got to visit & clean ash from has a different boiler so it can run)

No. 1223 has been out of traffic since 1989 as new federal regulations would have required replacing the firebox walls, and the museum (which lent the locomotive to Strasburg) prefers to keep the locomotives on display with their original parts.

:( I just don't find it fair, the parts are old but classic so they won't replace them so the engine can't run

Also the museum is trying to finish the cosmetic restoration of a locomotive and build a shelter for the rolling stock parked outside, which does not leave it with the money that would be needed to restore 1223 (or 7002) to operating condition.

I wish they still ran this locomotive at The Strassburg Railroad. This is definitely one of my favorite Locomotives!

Hmm, so cool.
:D

One of my favorite modern-style 4-4-0s put there, besides Wilmington and Western no. 98, and such!
(Although I have no idea why some steam locomotives always have the whistle on the fireman's side and stuff like that...)
