Every once and awhile, work and cool stuff in Chicago match up. Case in point, Saturday I worked, and low and behold steam was back in Chicago in the form of Soo Line 2-8-2 Mikado #1003, doing a charity fundraiser for The Shriner's Children's Hospital. Quite a few folks around, and got to talk shop a bit. Great looking locomotive and sounded good as well. Here are 2 of my favorites.
