  1. Beautiful! I've ridden in the cab of that locomotive when it was in Iowa.

  2. Was lived in Colorado Springs, the whole state is amazing views

  3. Thanks, Shelly Gunderson. I wasn't aware of there being a narrow gauge railway in Iowa. Just researched the Midwest Central Railroad where #9 found a home before being leased to Georgetown.

  4. Kusuma Hook, agreed, the state of Colorado is beautiful.

  5. Yes, it's part of a big Steam Thresher show similar to what I work at in Minnesota. Very cool locomotive. They were sad to see it go though they got one in exchange.

  6. Definitely interesting, Shelly Gunderson​. I learned something new today. Thanks.
