The star of the show was Ohio Central 6325, an Alco 4-8-4 built for the Grand Trunk Western in 1942. Ohio Central purchased it in 1992 and first operated it in 2001. It was under steam for the festival, but did not pull passengers while I was there.

There were two 0-4-0 saddle tank steam locomotives. Flagg Coal Co. 75 was built by Vulcan in Feb 1929. It is owned by the Michigan State Trust for Railway Preservation.

Ohio Central 3 was built by Alco Schenectady in 1926 for Southern Wood Preserving (same number).

Flagg Coal Co. 75 ran tirelessly up and down the track all day.
