Here's something you don't see very often.

The race is missing three locos: 4449, 844, and 4019. :=3

Get those three in the race!

The 844 and 4449 would walk away from those four, I'm sure. :=3

BTW, the 4449 and the 844 did race and the 4449 won by a large margin, while going up grade! :=3

It would have been nice to see 3801 on there, but she's undergoing boiler restoration.

Normally 6029 (the big articulated Garrett) would pull freight but she's Historic, so it's a lighter passenger consist for her.

By law, the steamers must have a back-up diesel attached. 5917 has 4490 as back-up. The 44 class were phased out in the 80s. 3642 (the green, main-line express engine)is backed up by 4001, which I have photos of a certain Foxaroo posing in front of. The 4000 class were phased out in the mid 60s.

The other back-up diesels are modern coal haulers brought in for the race.
