Remarks & Notes 
Homeward bound. SOO 1003 heads east on the WSOR toward her home in Hartford, Wisconsin, hauling just her tool car, which is cleverly disguised as a Milwaukee Road Reefer, and a SOO Line Caboose. She is seen here on a late fall afternoon, passing the unguarded crossing at Grant Road in the little town of Rubicon.

The big "Ten-Oh-Three" is a 130-ton Alco Product, built in 1913 for the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railway ("Soo Line"), which she served for 41 years. Today, she is immaculately maintained by the Steam Locomotive Heritage Association and is housed at the Wisconsin Auto Museum in Hartford, WI. She runs occasionally at local holiday events and on photo charters, such as this 2016 event, which was organized by Historic Transport Preservation (HTP).
