Historic 261 Steam Engine Visits Duluth This Weekend [VIDEO]

Rayman loves trains. I first fell in love with steam locomotives when I was a kid. So big, so powerful, so much noise, how could you not love them. My dad always told me to wave at the engineer, and I still do it to this day. This weekend we can all relive some memories, as  for the first time in years, a train heads to Duluth pulled by the historic Milwaukee Road 261 locomotive says the Duluth News Tribune.

“When the 261 gets up here, the 2719, our Soo Line locomotive, will be in full operation, and we will have two mainline passenger steam locomotives working at the same time in the same place,” said Ken Buehler, executive director at the Historic Union Depot & Lake Superior Railroad Museum.

If you are an avid train lover, and would enjoy seeing history come alive, get your camera and join me this Saturday. I can’t wait to see that locomotive. Watch the video of the 261
