One of only two surviving steamers from the Minneapolis & St. Louis. One error in the report is that it ran much later than 1938 as it was sold by the "Louie" to a sugar company where it continued in service for a number of years.

I'm glad to see it back together again. I was there last week and it was still in pieces, the people I talked to didn't know what the plan for it was. I could tell it was from Annandale by its look and wheel arrangement.

Does anyone know what the plans are for this old girl?

Some additional info on the Consolidation:

Built by Baldwin in December of 1910 (s/n 35702) for the Iowa Central Railway as their #429. The Iowa Central was acquired by the M&StL early in 1912 and eventually the 2-8-0 was renumbered from 429 to 471 and given classification H6-38. In 1943, the 471 was sold to the C. H. Klein Brick Company (not a sugar company as I previously stated) in Chaska, Minnesota. In 1967 it was sold to Donald Lind who moved it to Annandale.

Depending on when you read this, I hope that everyone HAS, IS HAVING or HAD, a wonderful Thanksgiving!
