Hi folks! We just had a great weekend at Train Festival in Owosso, Michigan, over 36,000 people came to the festivities and that doesn't include the thousands more who rode the trains outside of the event!
We're headed westward and hope everybody gets a chance to see us steam by. Plans have changed by the day and we hope that through this website and Twitter, you too can be kept in the loop as to what's going on.
We also hope you come on board and ride during our move back to Oregon, your ticket purchase helps raise funds for the SP 4449, MILW 261, and Steam Railroading Institute!
