Soo Line Steam from the Collection of Harold Vollrath

Soo Line H-23 Pacific 2718 at North Fond du Lac, WI.  Photo taken May 1954. 2718 and sister 2719 were active excursion locomotives for Soo Line in their later lives, and because of that both survive today. 2719 steams again today, and I often wonder if 2718 could be restored to operation as well? Today the 2718 is at the National Railroad Museum, Green Bay, WI. For another view click here.
