Knowledgeable and fun tour. Every question was answered. Great people to talk with. Lots of information about the the past and the future of the train engine. Looking forward to riding on the rails.

We love for kids to visit 2926! A future engineer maybe? Today, Marty was hard at work on some plumbing under the Tender. You can view all the weekly work session photos on our website. Thank you for leaving us a very nice review!

Discovered the AT&SF 2926 in a AAA magazine article. The restoration of the locomotive and the crew restoring her couldn’t have been more welcoming and informative! Go visit and help put her back on the rails!!!!More
