Hey Train Fans

This trainfest thing is happening this week in Owosso MI, which is about an hour from me.
 
The host group are the folks with the Pere Marquette 1225 (this engine was the basis for the Polar Express movie)
 
Visiting are the NKP 765, SP4449, and a number of smaller locos.
 
The 4449 came through here last Sunday on it's way in from Chicago.  I had to work in the evening, and they ended up well behind schedule, so my chasing was a little limited, but this is what I got.

Various excursions the next 4 days, and then the 4449 heads back next Fri, so hopefully I'll have more to follow. :)

Are you near that short line in MI that owns the last 2 Baldwin
Sharknoses left in the world and hides them in storage where train fans
can't see them?  Be nice if they'd show them off sometimes.

No, those are WAY up north someplace.  Story I heard was that years ago they had a group of fans visiting and something got stolen, and they've kept the doors locked ever since.
