4014 leaving Duluth on 07-21-2019

Postby tom c » Sun Jul 28, 2019 3:25 pm

I thought I would open a new thread with my pics so the can be found easier. Before 4014 left, the diesel took the train and pushed back to Rices Pt and waited. It was a little before noon when Ed Dickens took the throttle and started her back out of the museum parking area. For some reason she stopped by the shop and held there for awhile, I chased her to Mike's yard and them watched her cross Grassy Pt. draw. from Belknap street where it comes in contact with the bay.

and 3 on Grassy Pt trackage.

I shot mostly video here but did stop and get 3 pics of her journey across. She went real slow and Ed did a couple of blowdowns on the West end and had the cylinder cocks open so had a lot of steam. I broke off the chase here and drove down to Andover to be with grandkids & wife.
