Train Expo 2014?
Author: Ianmck425

I have been wondering for a while...is there any other BIG steam coming to this event?

Never heard of it. So,,, where will it be held? What are the dates? What "big steam" locomotives are already committed? What railroad/railroads are hosting the event?

Well, the information is already on The Steam Railroad Institute's website & it will tell you the up to date information about the steam engines that will be going. Like the Gramling tank engines, the steamers from The Little River Railroad & even possibly BUT maybe Nickel Plate 765 if the berkshire doesn't have a BIG schedule with Norfolk Southern this summer.

According to the SRI website and Facebook page, Train Expo 2014: Locomotives, Wings, and Wheels will be taken place at the Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso, Michigan from June 20th to the 22nd, 2014. At the moment, 5 steam locomotives have been official confirmed for attendance at the event.

Pere Marquette 1225
Little River Railroad 110
Little River Railroad 1
Lehigh Valley Coal CO 126
Flagg Coal CO 75

SRI have stated that there will be more updates/announcements in the near future so it would be advise to keep an eye out on both their website and Facebook page. Hopefully, there will be those on this forum that are affiliated with both SRI and the event that will chime in as well.

I hope that answers you question and have a good night (Stay warm as well!).

I can imagine that a few more steamers at least will show up....it's only January, there's still time for these things to be announced!

Bills ever get paid on the last steam extravaganza they had in Owosso? I can't remember who owed who but there was a big kerfufflel about it.

It would probably be advised to contact SRI about the topic at hand as you're pretty much asking the wrong guy here. I'm basically just a run-of-the-mill rail fan who was more than willing to help answer Ianmck425's question with information already confirmed from SRI. Just something to point out.

Thank you very much and gave a good night.

Damn all I wanted to know if any other bigger engines(765,261,ect...) were going to be attending, or there was talk of it.

Well, I can say with certainty that SP4449, SP&S700, UP844, UP3985, AT&SF3751, and N&W611 will NOT be attending.

And I dont't think 1218,2120,2100,2102 or 610 will either...smile.

Curious to see if this goes any further.

Well, there are quite a few steam locomotives in the Michigan/Wisconsin/Ohio/Midwest area in general that could show up...some big ones, some not-quite-as-big ones, etc. You never know...

What steam engines sit in Ohio? I can't think of
any operable steam locomotives in Ohio, or even any
that could be restored in time. Ohio... Ohio...
why does that state - so close to Michigan - ring a
bell? : )

Hey - maybe Steamtown's 0-6-0 #26 will make an
appearance, lol.

Trains, wings and wheels... wonder why it is called
"Train Expo"? I guess that leaves room for motive
power of the non-coal /oil burning nature, too?

Looking forward to the event and the updates.

I believe 1293 from Age of Steam can still operate.
