The ALCO S4 locomotive is being loaded on the trailer for the trip to Abilene, which will probably be sometime next week. I will keep you posted as to when and route they will take.

11/17/2017

ASVRR is proceeding with the big project of moving the ALCO S4 from Missouri to Abilene. The trailer they have been building to haul the engine was moved to the site of the Asbury, MO power plant Thursday, November 16 and they are beginning to get things ready for the move. Sometime after December 1 they will work on getting the engine ready to load and haul back to Abilene. I will try to post when that is happening and what route they are taking for those of you that are interested.

10/25/2017

Correction, and my mistake! The Santa train will be December 9. Call the Abilene Parks & Rec office for reservations.
