Oct 28: Pere Marquette


I’m in Muskegon, MI tonight and tomorrow. For dinner Mike, Jen, and I drove over to Grand Haven about 10 minutes away. On the way, we passed the Pere Marquette 1223 and Caboose A-986. Now, the Pere Marquette 1225 is the locomotive of The Polar Express. I got to see it last year at the big train festival that was in Owosso. Now, I’ve met its only surviving sibling (i think) 1223.
Some days, it’s the unexpected adventures that make my job the best in the world.
