This is according to GSMR's official Facebook page. For those who don't have Facebook, here's the post. Plenty of videos on YouTube as well.

The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad 1702 Steam Engine made its first trip to Dillsboro, North Carolina this afternoon! Riders on the Tuckasegee River Excursion enjoyed the steam train adventure and shopping in Dillsboro’s historic downtown. The GSMR is one of many nearby attractions you can experience on your trip to Jackson County. Departing from Bryson City, this 4 hour excursion travels 32 miles round-trip to Dillsboro and back to the Bryson City Depot. Pass by the famous movie set of The Fugitive starring Harrison Ford on the route! For the steam engine schedule, visit http://www.gsmr.com/steam

The 2-8-0 really looks good! Congrats to the crew. New style lettering on tender and cab, and the initials on the dome, are well done.
