View Full Version : Looking for 2004 Steam event listings in USA

01-10-2004, 09:56 PM
I'm looking to attend some of the upcoming events for steam locomotives with an eye on photography of runbys. In particular, the larger locomotives in the USA are those in which I am interested.

About 20 years ago there was a big resurgence of this activity, but my general impression is that today much of that stuff has been withdrawn from use.

Any info, URLs and addresses of organizations that will be running large steam will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Milwaukee 261 will be making an appearance in late June. Their route is available on their site which I don't know how to link here.

www.261.com/index Click on "etickets" for complete itinerary and ordering info for the various trips. The route is roughly in the upper Midwest
