In December the Nevada State Railroad Museum located in Carson City, NV rolls out N°25 to drive The Santa Train.
You know when I went to the Railroad Museum before she wasn’t out that time. click here to see that post. I’ve wanted to get back up here to see the Steamie since.
Just as I did before I arrived early hoping to see the crew rolling her out of the garage, but I was a wee bit late she was already out and building pressure. N°25 was built in 1905 by the Baldwin Locomotive Works. She’s a 78-ton 10-wheeler. She hauled both passenger and freight cars between Carson, Virginia City, and Reno from 1911 to 1947.
Now she runs on special days throughout the year.
One of the special events she’s rolled out for is during December when she’s The Santa Train which is N°25, a passenger car, and a red caboose. Passengers come for a ride around the station and Santa Claus is on the train to talk to the children, and I hear he passes out candy canes to everyone.
Here she is at the station getting some water, and passengers.
I spy Santa! He’s with the Conductor, Engineer, the Brakemen, and some Elves disguised as cowboys. 😉
Here comes THE SANTA TRAIN!! TOOT! TOOT!
I don’t know if I’ll be posting much anymore this year things are going to get busy pretty quick. Big Baby Boy and The Crosscourt Kitty🐈 are arriving soon for the Holidays and #1 Grandson is coming to visit too!
There’ll be kids jingle belling, holiday greetings, gay happy meetings, and tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago! It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
In case I don’t get another chance to let me wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year!! xx
I’m chugging out…TOOOOT! TOOT! 😍
