Oh wow that makes sense then. I didn't realize she was that heavy! Although I feel that I heard once she was too heavy for the trestles at Disneyland which is why she was never sent there. I hope to go to Cedar Point next year to see her next season if they get her operating.

There is still a lot of work to do to get her running. It depends on how much is accomplished during the off season. With three operating engines already, there isn't much of a rush to get it out on the line.

Wow cool, thanks for the update!

It sure looks quite different compared to the last time that I saw it in the roundhouse about 10 years ago. It's great to see it in operation.

Cedar Point has finally decided on a name for this Davenport. On June 22nd, the locomotive will be renamed the G.A. Boeckling in honor the former General Manager of the park.

Very appropriate, when that "other name" was mentioned I about had a heart attack. Now we just have to get Jack Foster's name back on the 5 spot where is belongs.

She looks incredible. How about some nice shots of the lamp artwork and the tender graphics. Would also like a nice shot of the builder's plate if possible.

I recently saw some video of this locomotive in action on Youtube. Search for Cedar Point railroad, you should find it in the results. Love the whistle in the video.
