BR&W is home to New Jersey's oldest operating steam locomotive!
BR&W #60 is a coal-fired consolidation type steam locomotive, built in August 1937 by the American Locomotive Company (ALCO) for the Great Western Railway of Colorado. Since 1965, she has made her home at BR&W here in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.
Our volunteers (the "Steam Team"!) tirelessly work to keep #60 in tip-top shape so she may continue to be a fixture of our community and pull BR&W trains.
#60 operates on various special events and trains throughout the year, but does not pull every BR&W passenger train. When #60 is scheduled to operate, please keep in mind that we reserve the right to substitute power and equipment at any time for any reason and without prior notice. We do everything in our power to operate steam when advertised, but sometimes #60 can throw us some surprises!
Each train on our Train Schedule describes whether it is scheduled to operate with steam or diesel power.
