November 2nd was an exciting day as #18 was once again home in Independence and under steam. Over 150 of our supporters showed up and ultimately contributed over $4200! Dozen more books were sold and Yours truly gave a short talk on the #18’s year in Durango, The day was wrapped up with an awesome tri-tip dinner and music.
Stephen Mather was on hand to take some awesome photos!
Some other highlights of the weekend included the continuation of our “Klusmire Museum Extension” switch installation. We also pulled our new boxcar #1C a time or two up and down the line.
As always , none of this would be possible without your generous donations and support! And don’t forget to get a copy of “Southern Pacific #18 Steams Anew” for a Christmas gift, they’re selling fast.
