At the 261 Shop Today

Postby Mark D » Thu May 23, 2019 8:55 pm

Not sure if the engine will be ready for our trips this spring. We're trying, but it's slow going. However, that diesel Steve bought should show up in town within a week or so.
The steam team from Union Pacific were to stop at our shop today, they're driving from Wyoming or wherever they come from. The idea is to check on trackage in places were they would like to take the Big Boy this summer. However, they got held up and only made it to Albert Lea where they stopped for the night. I was disappointed, I wanted to meet them. Supposedly they'll be at the 261 shop tomorrow. I won't be there.
Steve said that they want to take the Big Boy to Duluth. Steve and I both know what that track is like. Barely handles the 261. We'll see how that goes.....
