I'll have a different horn on 310 for the weekend.  I think you guys will like it.  It's a classic!

That horn was awesome. I'm surprised there wasn't a bigger crowd but it made it easy to find a spot on the south side of the track.

Nice pics, thanks!

For some reason, I've always liked that E.L. paint scheme.

Perhaps its just the unique use of the colors (who knows?).

Where did the museum get the GTW transfer caboose from?
 There was an identical one that used to sit in someones yard south of Mishawaka on Hwy 331 near Woodland and I was wondering if it is the same one.
