Preserved Soo Line Steam Locomotives

Soo Line 2719 comes full circle. Here, the 2719 is seen about to depart Osceola, WI on August 30, 1998, with an excursion train--the first time the 2719 had operated for revenue passengers since 1959. As an interesting side note, the last time 2719 ran for revenue, it was over this same line, some 39 years earlier! With two operating Soo Line steam locomotives now plying the rails of the Upper Midwest, I hope that all Soo fans will be able to see them both again very soon.
