Maybe post some pictures of the stolen train.

What kind of train was it? Can't be that big if someone stole it.

I've seen the pictures in some of the dogpatch pics posted here and in other places. My guess is that it's being renovated, I hope. I can't see someone stealing a damn train but people will steal anything, right?

Hey I live by the Missouri vetrans home in St James Mo. and they used to have a old WWII Tank out frount the also have a few old cannons I noticed the Tank was gone one day SO I asked the Director Of Nursing where it went she said she didn't even know there had been one---YEs a GREAT BIG T WWII TANK--- but anyway one day a truck pulled up frount and loaded it on a trailer and since they knew what they were doign no one asked to see a work order -----end result Tank Gone and no one knows where or why
just goes to show if you look like you know what you are doing most people never ask

Yeah, but I'd steal a tank. C'mon, why not? Very Happy

Yes, someone actually stole the train. I'm not sure how but the generator from the mill was stolen as well and that's quite an amazing accomplishment too.

Our caretaker caught someone trying to load the train on a truck one day and ran them off but it looks like they returned and finished the job. This has been a few years now.

If anyone know anything about it, send me a PM. Thanks

heh... noone would be stealing any tank on my watch... I always ask questions and ask to see papers from anyone even if they look like they know what they are doing... Sorry but all people who let that tank just get loaded up liek that should have been fired by the highest person. As for the train. I don't remember how big the land is for Dogpatch but it's big enough that noone can watch all of it simoutaniously so I can see how the train would get stolen. Hope it turns up and you don't have to spend money trying to get it back.

Willard i do agree with you and i would like to think i would ask for some kind of work order but the Director is not on site that much and the D.O.N is not really concerned about Tanks and the maintance crew may have even helped load it up (they are suposed to get a "NewTank" next year) But my question about the train was did it still run I would guess it was propane and not steam and that they probaly only got the engin and fuel car which would be amazing it was not all froze up it had to have set for a lot of years out in the weather but still that had to be a big hunkuing truck to get in the part and move it around with all the undergroth sounds like someone really knew what they were doing and or had a lot of help

I loved that train. We would always ride the train when we went to Dogpatch. When I was really little it would scare the hell out of me when the bad guy hill folk came to hold up the train. I loved it. I wish Dogpatch were up and running so I could take my kids there.
