    On September 22-23 the Chicago chapter of the N.R.H.S. is putting on a steam excursion trip behind Soo Line #1003.
    I'm hoping some of you will be able to attend this event.
    You can get information from their web site:
    I will be there on crew with the locomotive so should not be too hard to find. It would be nice to meet some of the people on T.G.

    This is Milwaukee Rd. Sky top "Ceder Rapids", always an honor to pull, all but two of the 13 cars were Milw. Rd., made up a darn nice looking train!

    #1003 is now wintering in the Antique Auto Museum in Hartford Wi. untill next spring, she is open to public viewing.
