Miniature DT&I caboose in Saginaw News

DT&I orange goes well with Halloween

Page A3 in the Saginaw News today shows a nice shot of miniature railroad caboose 108 and the
“We Have the Connections” compass herald.

The 67-year-old caboose and other pieces of equipment were put in service for a Fall Harvest event this past Tuesday.

Additional pictures of the Detroit, Toledo and Ironton miniature train can be viewed at
the on-line mlive photo gallery below. (Scroll to about photo 27 of the 40 picture gallery.)
Several engineers operated the Lima Switcher during the 5 hour event. The newspaper photo journalist caught
live steam boiler maker Marty Knox at the engine’s throttle in one of the pictures.

It was a fun day! ... t_fes.html

Glad to see you got it out for some exercise. Nice to see Linda got a cameo also.

How much track is set up for this event? And is the train set up annually?
