Everett Railroad 2-6-0 Mogul #11

This is the core of steam locomotive No. 11 undergoing restoration for the Everett Railroad at WMSR's shop in Ridgeley, WV back in September of 2013.

No. 11 was constructed in 1920 for use in Cuba by the Cooke Works of the American Locomotive Company (Alco) in Paterson, New Jersey. The sugar markets unexpectedly declined, however, and the engine sat unsold until the Narragansett Pier Railroad in Peace Dale, Rhode Island purchased it in 1923. No. 11's tenure in Rhode Island lasted fourteen years before being sold in 1937 to the Bath & Hammondsport Railroad in Hammondsport, New York. Eventually finding favor with newer diesel powered engines, the B&H Railroad for retired number 11 in 1949, though held onto it for sentimental reasons until 1955 when she was sold to Dr. Stanley A. Groman for his "Rail City" museum in Sandy Pond, NY. Around 1977 No. 11 was sold, yet again, to another collector, Dr. John P. Miller, who had earlier purchased the Narragansett Pier Railroad, thus returning No. 11 to her home. Dr. Miller never completed the overhaul and number 11 was sold again, in 1981, to the Middletown & New Jersey Railroad of Middletown, NY, though the president of that railroad was never able to start restoration work. Eventually, in 2004, No. 11 was transferred to James Wright, a business partner in the M&NJ. Wright, in turn, sold the engine to Alan Maples, president of the Everett Railroad, in 2006. Alan Maples moved No. 11 to the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad's shops in Ridgeley, West Virginia for heavy repairs. The bulk of these repairs were finished in March 2015, and the locomotive was then trucked to the Everett Railroad's shops in Claysburg, PA where her restoration was completed. In fall of 2015, the locomotive returned to service for the first time since the early 1970s and serves as the railroad's primary excursion power, though another engine,2-8-0 #38, former Huntingdon & Broad Top Mountain Railroad is expected to join No. 11. No. 38 also spent time at the WMSR for repairs before being shipped back to Everett for final assembly.
