    It just won't be the same without our own Ironhorseman running her.

    I've been vollunteering up there and learning how to fire the 19. I wasn't up there when they ran freight with her, but our engineer said that she performed flawlessly. It had rained too so they slipping their drivers as they pulled 11 empty cars up hill to the mill. I think he said they ran out of sand, but she performed exactly how she was supposed to. I had my first chance to fire for part of the run last Sunday and it was a blast. I can't wait until I get up there next sunday, and hopefully get a chance to fire for more of the trip. I'll try and get picture next time I go.
