Pretty short notice posting this one, but it's a neat event. If you can't make it this year, consider doing it in 2015.

We'll have steam pulling a wooden passenger train made up of a RPO/baggage car and passenger car. Should there be a mishap on the tracks here, we'll send for the big hook; a century old operating steam powered wrecking crane. This wrecking crane is pulled by a century old 2-8-0 steam locomotive that looks like it just rolled out of the American Locomotive Company shops. The wreck train consists of the crane, flat car, tool car, outfit car and, of course, a caboose.

Once the tracks are cleared, it's time to get on with the business of railroading. Freight trains can once again roll and so will ore trains. Most of the freight in the last century moved in boxcars. No self respecting railroad would be without boxcars—and the N. N. Ry is no different. Four wooden boxcars, built in 1912 are in top condition and are ready for their next load.
