Tentative Steam Schedule

The Frisco Decapod should be operating again at IRM this summer, after a lapse of several years, so let's all try to spread the word.  The Steam Dept. has published a tentative schedule of when the 1630 is planned to operate.  This is not a guarantee that the locomotive will run on these days, of course; if issues arise, the schedule will have to be changed.  People planning to drive long distances to see steam should call IRM at 815-923-4391 to check for last-minute changes.


May 17-18   (cancelled)
May 24-26    (Memorial Day weekend)
June 7-8, 14-15
August 2-3, 16-17, 23-24
August 30-Sept. 1   (Labor Day weekend)
Sept. 20-21    (Showcase weekend)

Nigel published a blog post today that indicated that the 1630 will not be running this weekend. Clearly, the early summer running will be touch and go as the 1630 shakes off its slumber and works out the kinks.
