261 is waking up for the day....
2719 blasts 261, as if not to be outdone at the night shoot....
McCloud #25 is seen heading east with photo special on one of the few stretches of straight track on the Tillamook Branch.
Deadheading past Battery Park, NKP 765 'steams' east, destined for Altoona, PA.
No the 261 did not travel back in time. I do wonder how much rutabagas cost in the old girl's prime.
A morning of battling snow squalls, hail, wind gusts and rain pays off as a resplendent 261 traverses the span at Sandstone en route to Duluth.
Mass pandemonium! 261 draws big crowds trackside as it arrives at the Duluth depot. Within a few minutes, the big 4-8-4 was surrounded!
261 steams off of the BNSF's Coal Runner and heads for the Grassy Point Draw.
261 rolls up to the north end of Cambridge siding for servicing.
261 is underway again after having paused briefly for the conductor to line the train into the siding at Cambridge, Minnesota.
The 261 steams south towards Askov, MN on a beautiful afternoon.
