With her back against the wall before her tube time expires this week, Trains Magazine chartered the Grand Canyon Railway and made the star of the show the ex-Lake Superior and Ishpeming Consolidation. Charging through Millers Wash, the lowest point of the Grand Canyon Railway, we find the 29 on her final trip to the South Rim.
With the tube time out on the 29, her future is uncertain, as it now rests with Xantera’s Corporate Office in Denver (the current owner of the GCRy). Meanwhile, a good time was had on this beautiful Saturday in the Northland of Arizona.

The Grand Canyon Railroad, operating a 64-miles former Santa Fe branch to the eponymous natural wonder, is one of the best tourist railroads in the United States. It operates both steam and diesel locomotives.
