DALLAS, TX — The Museum of the American Railroad has set a tentative schedule to begin moving its signature steam locomotives to Frisco, TX, in what will be the final steps to relocating the half-century-old museum from Dallas’ Fair Park to the suburbs.
The museum has already moved much of its 40-piece collection, including 10 pieces that were transported in mid-April, to its new location north of Dallas. Moves of both locomotives will be made during the day to prevent any disruption of Trinity Railway Express operation between Dallas Union Station and Irving.
While the most difficult moves still lie ahead, CEO Bob LaPrelle said excitement is building as MAR enters the final stretch of a relocation that began five years ago with Frisco’s donation of 12.34 acres to provide a new home for the embattled museum. All in all, Lindsay, a 36-year veteran of steam rehabilitation and repair, says both locomotives are in good shape considering their age and conditions they’ve experienced outdoors. When it departs Fair Park, the locomotive will roll at a maximum speed of 10 mph once out on the mainline. To help the massive 4-8-8-4 locomotive and tender manage a tight curve beyond the first switch at Fair Park, the three axles on the “Centipede” tender will be blocked. LaPrelle said the museum found some Union Pacific mechanical records from the mid-1960s that suggested the technique, because tenders are more prone to problems on curves, particularly when empty during back up moves. Also, the switch frog and points on the turnout outside the gate is going to be removed and straight rails installed reduce the possibility of derailment. Museum officials have received inquiries from all over the world about the upcoming moves and plan some sort of media event.
Because nine of the 10 pieces are equipped with friction-type wheel bearings, volunteers kept a close eye on the move. MAR’s three freight cars, all of which date from the late teens and early 1920s, arrived without incident.


Volunteers had a tense moment when MAR’s GG1 locomotive tried to climb the rails on the switch leaving Fair Park. Ultimate Model RailroadThe Colorado Model Railroad Museum accomplished what many can only dream - building the ultimate layout.
PLUS…Union Pacific has taken its safety message to social media platforms with two video campaigns launched in 2015. The true value of a model railroad or memorabilia collection may only be the fun and appreciation of owning it. Nearly six exhausting hours after the doors opened on the first day of the World’s Greatest Hobby on Tour in San Antonio, a group of N-scalers celebrated a successful run on the world’s largest T-TRAK layout – 15.60273 scale miles.

MAR has been in a struggle with the City of Dallas, which wants to acquire the property for additional space for the State Fair of Texas. The wheels will be jacked up and have spacers placed such that the flanges are above the rail head in hopes of eliminating a derailment. A UP memorandum prepared by the chief mechanical officer to museums receiving the donated “Big Boys” outlined instructions to help tenders cope with curves.
Once the remaining locomotives and rolling stock are in Frisco, MAR will begin removing rail and signals from Fair Park and close the chapter on a major move that began five years ago when the City of Frisco donated a 12.3-acre track off the North Dallas Tollway to house the museum collection.
Six journals ran hot, requiring immediate attention to maintain a safe temperature throughout the move.

Most model railroad collections are usually worth far less than the owner thinks, says one buyer and seller. The blog talk radio show, which began in 2002, is carrying on its vision of hosting a place where train enthusiasts gather. The ladder-style layout smashed the previous record of 10.04 scale miles set by five layouts in 2008 at the “Derby City Express” convention in Louisville, KY.

Cowcatcher Publisher Tim Blackwell offers another great reason to visit Kansas City: a number of top-notch N-scale layouts will be on tour in June 29-July 3 at the 2016 National N Scale Convention in nearby Overland Park, KS. The F7A diesel painted in Santa Fe Warbonnet colors, which sat behind the “Meteor”, will provide the power. 4018 and their tenders servicing axles – draining, cleaning and repacking each journal box with lubricating pads and oil. The locomotives – along with the F7A Santa Fe diesel and two storage box cars – are all that remain in Dallas, where the museum first set up shop in 1963.
The “Meteor’s” driving wheels will require special attention, with each Hennessey lubricator being bench-tested before reassembly.
