The other day I was watching the C Vision Productions video on the Sisseton Milbank Railroad and I was surprised to see at one time passenger specials were offered out of Milbank, albeit only during the Milbank Train Festival.

Do we know where the equipment ended up after the train rides ended in 2005? I managed to find where 5 of the 7 of the pieces ended up, but not sure where the other two ended up. Everything railroad related in Lake Farley Park appears to have been removed.

GN Coach 993 - Disposition unknown.
Soo Line Coach 2111 - Disposition unknown.

MILW MOW Caboose 992298 - Still on Sisseton Milbank Railroad, stored in Milbank?
MILW MOW Caboose 992299 - Now at Milwaukee Road Heritage Center, Montevideo, MN.
MILW Combine 2705 - Now at Ironhorse Railroad Park, Chisago City, Minnesota
GN Baggage Car 257 - Now at Lake Superior Railroad Museum, Duluth, MN.
Soo Line Diner 756 - Now at Prairie Village, Madison, SD.
