https://www.circlevilleherald.com/spotlight/train-engine-free-to-a-good-home-must-be-willing/article_e492e623-6bc1-5609-b283-fc885200df09.html

Sturm & Dillard Company #106 currently resides at the Pickaway County Fairgrounds in Circleville, OH, about 30 miles south of Columbus. Apparently the fair board says it is no longer part of their future plans and want it to find a new home, preferably locally. They seem to want to avoid it being scrapped and are not is a great hurry but want it gone by late 2018. It is available for free but new owner must pay for transportation.

I have seen this locomotive but not for many years. It is not in great cosmetic shape but does not appear to be stripped. Has been in the open for many many years and not kept painted. If anyone needs detailed photos of it, I can see what I can do as pass nearby to it every month or two.

Sister 0-6-0 #105 is at the Age of Stem Roundhouse, 0-4-0T #100 at an antique shop in Olmsted Falls and 0-6-0 #102 displayed at a flea market in Hubbardston, MA.

We made a proposal for it and to return it to operation but were told they wanted it to stay local.

I guess that hasn't panned out. If so I would think they would have gone down the list... if they had made one.

A call on Monday is in order lol.

We also offered a good home for it with the potential to operate but they clearly want it all on their terms, may as well have put a price on it too.......

Unbelievable. They want to get rid of it but only under very specific circumstances.
Queue the people with the torches for this time next year...

If you look at the notes on the Steam Locomotive Information entry I posted earlier, you will find this:

"Posted: 2017-08-31 14:51:18.32 by Jason Coatney
We have started a group to try and keep the locomotive in Circleville."

No indication given of who the "we" is.
