Good grief! She looks horrible! Then again what would they expect when leaving a machine outside forever and not taking care of it. Realy, would you leave a Corvette outside and do nothing?

I have to agree and echo the comment by Dennis A. Livesey.."Good grief! She looks horrible!" The description says "..restored for the Nethercutt Collection.." - if she's been "restored" recently - then someone did one horrible job of restoration work. Someone needs to pony up some cash or start a "GoFundMe" account to raise the cash to cosmetically restore this beauty (again) as well as build a cover for her like the private car No. 100 the "California" is under. That cover needs to be expanded to cover BOTH pieces of equipment.

Is it a trick of the lighting, or is the jacketing on the boiler and the cylinders stainless steel? If it is stainless, it sure wasn't that way when Southern ran this locomotive in the late 70's.

Another thought comes to mind - for being a "Royal Hudson", she certainly doesn't look very "Royal". In fact she looks more like a street begging "Commoner" than Royalty.

Yes, It is a shame they are letting the locomotive deteriorate. I questioned them about it and all they said was, its only cosmetic. Maybe if the were to hear from the many railfans, they will do something about its condition.

The owner of this private automobile museum is a multi-millionair. No need to take up a collection.
