A Once in a Lifetime Event:
Engine No18, restored to operation in 2017 by the Carson & Colorado Railway organization from Independence California, arrived at the Laws Railroad Museum and Historical Site on March 16, 2023, to be reunited with her sister Engine No9 (on static display), and No18 was in steam and operating on our rails during her visit.
Both engines are oil-fired 4-6-0 “Ten-Wheeler” narrow gauge locomotives, built by Baldwin in 1911.
Guests had the opportunity to ride in caboose No401 pulled behind the one and only Slim Princess No18 !
Rides were offered from 9:00am to 4:00pm, on the four days, March 18-19 and 25-26.
