GREAT NEWS.... Southern 2-8-0 # 385 has been cosmetically restored to her proper paint scheme, this the fist time she has looked like this in well over six decades when the engine operated in regular service for the Southern Railroad! The 101 year old engine was built 1907 at the Baldwin Locomotive Works, just outside of Philadelphia. The 385 is a Class H4 2-8-0 locomotive that was based out of Spencer, N.C. and operated along the Southern for 45 years.  Of course this locomotive became Morris County Central 385 and operated many times on Erie Lackawanna trackage her in New Jersey. In 1978 the 385 was taken out of service and has not operated since. I was lucky enough to ride behind her on the last "Snowflake Express" the ran from Newfoundland to Beaver Lake on the Susquehanna, I rode the wooden D&H Caboose that day, its also on display at Whippany now. The 385 was sure showing her age on that trip!
 One year ago 385 returned to Whippany for static display, and here she is today! Back in all her Southern glory, a perfect Christmas gift.
Here's a few photos, and one of the 4039 at Whippany.
