Introducing the 1st Annual Grand Rapids Steamfest! Featuring Pere Marquette Berkshires 1223 & 1225, Marquette Rail's Wyoming Yard roundhouse will be the place to be for the Fourth of July for railfans and historians alike! Inside the new soon-to-be-opened roundhouse built from the original Pere Marquette blueprints, a large array of historical artifacts, memorabilia, shows, and of course the steam locos will be on display! Come also and enjoy the ride behind one of the PM Berks, maybe even some other steamer north to Newyago and Return!

Lineup:
- PM 2-8-4 #1223 (Operational)
- PM 2-8-4 #1225 (Operational)
- AARR SD70ACe #### (Operational)
- HC&E 0-6-0 #### (Operational?)

We're looking for more steamers and steam-era equipment to be put on display! Post here if interested in sending something. Pickup via CSX Barr, PC Hughart, TSCR Toledo, or AA AnnPere. Steamers can run on Marquette Rails enroute to Grand Rapids. If interested in pulling excursions during the show, let me know :)

I know I dont have any steam but could I send my F-Units and 5 passenger cars? If I can't send the F-units, I can at least send the passenger cars if you need extra Equipment.

I could help with excursions, i could pull one of our passenger locomotives for it. Would you prefer a PRR K4 pacific or a WM K2 pacific? Im gonna have to take #54 of the list of locomotives sent, its in the shops for oil conversion, im not sure it will be ready by July 4th.

You can bring your exec train if you wish :) , but only if you let people tour it (not necessarily the exec coach). Also, which SD70ACe will it be?

Planning on comming via Annpere?

We'll take the 0-6-0. What ###? Is it okay to let people in the cab? And maybe small excursions around town?

I see you don't know if you can send #54, but if we find that it can make it, I'm sure we can make room :wink:

But, we will take:
- NGS-1X #90. I need to know wheel arrangement operational/non-operational, and if tours of the cab will be allowed?
- Cab-Forward. I need to know ###, Wheels Arr., Operational?, cab tours allowed?
- Rotary. Need to know the same info as above, minus wheel arr.

Also, need to plan a route to GRR.

What do you have for F-units?

The HPR executive ABBA set, 2 F9A's and 2 F9B's. In the HPR executive blue and orange. The passenger cars are matching with the F units. I'll even r"epaint or wash the whole train before sending it. And I'll allow tours of the cabs and the rest of the train.

How many passenger cars? Might use the A-B set with them for passenger excursions?

Thinking of sending our pair of F3As up to the festival, along with 3 passenger cars (1 normal, 2 memorabilia/display), a boxcar of other historical stuff, and one of our cabooses (cupola w/ extended windows). The official decision is still to be announced, but it's definetly a possibility as of right now.

Also, I'd be fine with tours in the cab, along with the passenger cars.

AA 100 (our first ace), the HCE 0-6-0 on a flat car, and my observation coach will read up via AnnPere on the 2nd or 3rd when time comes.

We will put platforms on both sides of the cab windows, and a limited amount of people can be allowed inside.
