If you’re looking for some fluff for LoGro, Union Pacific 3985, the world’s largest operable steam locomotive, will be visiting Northfield on Friday, September 26. It will be pulling a passenger train and will stop in Sechler Park.
It’s scheduled to be there from 1:30-2:00, but I’d suggest keeping an eye on the GPS tracking map to see where it is before heading out. The train will be traveling up from the south on its way to Saint Paul, and will return to its base in Cheyenne, WY via the line to Mankato, so this will be your only chance to see the locomotive in Northfield.
I can’t be there. Can someone take photos?
