The Shay (Sierra #2) is running!

This weekend the Shay #2 was back on line, indefinitely. 

It took a lot of work on the part of many paid and volunteer staff, but we have steam again!  Come out and see it! 

Trains run every Saturday and Sunday, on the hour, from 11-3.  Earlybirds can peek in the roundhouse and see the crew getting ready, and if you stay after the last train, you can watch the locomotive on the turntable and see the crew put it away.
