Canadian National 4-6-0 G-16-a #1129 was originally built in 1912 by the Montreal Locomotive Works for the Canadian Northern Railway. She spent her entire life working branch lines and shorter mixed freights across the CN system. When retired in 1959, she was placed on display in a park in St. John, New Brunswick in eastern Canada. After major flooding in 1975, #1129 was moved to Montpelier, Vermont for display with various other railroad equipement. There she underwent a major cosmetic restoration. Work had even begun to restore the engine to operating condition, but in December of 1990, it was determined that the grounds which the collection sat on was to be repurposed the following year. An auction was immediately held to find new homes for the equipement. A newly formed railroad, the Dry Brook & Esopus Valley, located in southeastern New York, bid the highest for #1129 and 5 of the collection’s passenger cars. Four of them arrived in Esopus, NY on March 1, 1991, and the 5th passenger car as well as #1129 arrived two weeks later on March 14th.

The Dry Brook & Esopus Valley Railroad was created on April 13, 1987, assuming freight operations on 12 miles of the former Hudson & Western Railroad from Esopus, NY to Fleischmanns, NY. The DB&EV consisted of a single Penn Central RS-1 left behind from Penn Centrals prior operations. It was determined fairly early on that more locomotives were going to be needed to handle the growing freight business. A former Conrail GP-9 and SW-1500 were obtained to add to the locomotive roster. As business increased, the draw of rail fans also increased. Ideas began circulating of adding a passenger train. The collection in Vermont became available, and the DB&EV ceased the opportunity to purchase the collection and move them to Esopus. The collection included former CN 4-6-0 #1129, a baggage car to be converted to a power generator car, a coach, a diner, a fluted observation car, and a private business observation car. On Memorial Day weekend of 1992, the Dry Brook official began it’s passenger train service, with the newly restored and renumbered #13 on the point!

Dry Brook & Esopus Valley #13 set includes: Engine, Tender, Power Car, Coach, Diner, Observation & Business Observation, as well as rusty Engine, Tender & Business Observation.

The Dry Brook & Esopus Valley railroad is based loosely on the Catskill Mountain Railroad in Kingston, NY.

The Route was created by Approach Medium and is available for purchase at: for Trainz: A New Era and Trainz 2019
