Soo Line #1003
On October 19, 20 & 21, 2007 the Soo Line #1003 pulled a Photographers Special in South Central Wisconsin. The trip was put together by Historic Transporation Preservation Inc at www.steamspecials.com
The event started on Friday evening with a night photo shoot in Brandon, WI. Then on Saturday October 20th the steam train started out in Fairwater, WI and then headed to Waupun, WI and ended the day at Beaver Dam, WI
Sunday the #1003 pulled the special from Randolph, WI back to Beaver Dam and into Rubicon and eventually back to Hartford, WI .
The weather was perfect with sunny skies and temperatures in the 70's. Not typical for Wisconsin but very well received.
