Brighton Local

Wickenberg, AZ / 2-8-0 ATSF Engine with Caboose

Recommended Posts

Im currently down in Arizona for a few weeks, so I was searching for some Railroad museums and attractions, and found this town called 'Wickenburg.' This town hosts the BNSF (Burlington Northern Sante Fe) Freight line with an old "Sante Fe" station ( which is now the town's Chamber of Commerce).

 

This old 2-8-0 ATSF engine #761, and caboose sits right next to BNSF's Main line. This engine used to pride the rails between the Midwest and Chicago..

 

Hope everyone likes :D

The steam, and freight really only run once a year, to stretch their legs
