I knew I kept all my blocks of wood for some reason.
They are not so easy to derail either.

Nate, well spotted!
It says 767 on the cab LH side @ 2:30 and 4:43 time mark and 765 on the cab RH side @ 6:19 and 9:19 time mark.

The engine has been renumbered to 767 (temporarily?) to honor that engine... there is something about the engine was originally numbered that before being donated to a city park and renumbered for some sort of commemoration of the 765 arriving. I guess there is also some confusion as to what engine the tender is actually from. (Museums often renumber engines to fit their needs at the moment... not much different than what the RRs have done in the past and are still doing!) This derailment occurred in the middle of the refurbishment and renumbering.

Great video!

Glad that in the model world a 5 finger crane works well

Scott, Garratt, two great videos, THANK YOU. If I found the 'library' where train video's can be accessed, I'd be couch potato for sure, I never get enough of them. LG
