Fans of the Soo Line in the upper Midwest have been lucky in recent years to be able to see and ride behind not one, but TWO restored Soo Line steam locomotives. Mikado 1003 currently resides at the Wisconsin Automotive Heritage Museum in Hartford, WI and Pacific 2719 is at the Lake Superior Railroad Museum in Duluth, MN. Here, the 1003 is seen on a cold and rainy November 13, 2010 pulling a Santa Claus train. After this excursion, the 1003 was taken out of service for her FRA-mandated 15 year inspection and rebuild, now complete.
