Just trying to get the word out now, but the annual East Jordan Freedom Fest will have something new featured this year during the festivities. EJ&S #6, a 2-6-0 Mogul will be taking a more prominent role in the festival this year. For the first time, the cab (which should be freshly restored to its "in service appearance) will be accessible for public viewing, and the whistle and bell will be available for public demonstrations. This will be the first time since 1961 that the voice of the 6 will be echoing across the Jordan River Valley and Lake Charlevoix for thousands of people to hear.
There isn't much of an online presence for this event, but the festival is set to take place on June 27th, so it shouldn't interfere with any 4th of July plans. In fact, its purposely done that way as to not interfere with surrounding festivals.
Hope to see you there, comment with any questions you may have!
