A Lonely Shovel

#7's shovel hangs quietly over the empty coal chute. She probably hasn't been used since #7 dropped her fire last in Dec 2003. Here's hoping that she'll be used again soon.

The frame will become the next target of the MNG crews, as a through inspection, cleaning, and painting is in order for the framework and tank.

#7 is in the middle of extensive restoration to her boiler, and the museum hopes to have her back in steam by late 2009 or early 2010. For more information, please visit and follow the progress in our work session reports
