BNSF 1685 Handover Ceremony Friday
BNSF 1685 has been in town for a while now, hiding in the BNSF engine house. It is being readied for donation to the Vintage Locomotive Society, home of the Prairie Dog Central Railway.
That donation will take place on Friday, July 16. PDC's steam engine #3 and diesel #4138 will be on hand at the BNSF shops on Lindsay Street for a ceremony at 11:00. The event is invitation only but I can't see why people can't line Lindsay Street to take long-distance shots.
CP has graciously offered to move the steam engine and diesel from PDC's location off Inkster Boulevard down the La Riviere subdivision to BNSF's shops, then move all three locomotives back.
It should be quite a show! Wish I could be there.
