It’s early on a cold October 4, 2010 morning, and the sound of a fast train led by UP 3985 fills the air near Buchner, MO. There are many miles ahead today on the Missouri River Eagle/Sedalia Sesquicentennial Special tour. Read more about this multi-state steam trip through the Heartland here - yardgoatimages.com/897.
In less than a minute the sound and the vapor trail begin to fade as the 4-6-6-4 pulls its consist eastward toward the day’s destination, Jefferson City, MO.
Featured on our "Steam Specials in the Heartland" DVD!
