Here is the ElCap on the road
Many SP modelers model Dunsmuir, CA. It was the division point for adding helpers for the climb into the Cascade mountains. The line is now operated by the UP and is an Amtrak Coast Starlight stop in the middle of the night. Here are a few photos that I took several years ago. NH Joe

Great pictures Joe! I see the "Malley" shed and turntable are still there.
I attended the TCA Convention in Albuquerque, NM this past summer and took the tour to the Santa Fe 2926 restoration facility. 2926 is one of the largest Northerns ever constructed. It is much larger than SP 4449 and SF 3751. 2926 is supposed to be steaming this winter or early next year. The boiler needed to be pressure tested and the cylinders installed at the time of this visit - August 2019.
Notice how the tender gleams. Reflections of the people can be seen in the paint. This is an oil fired engine.
