The museum thru a trade with Travis Visser of White Bear Lake, Minnesota acquired the headlight, builders plate and misc photos from Northern Pacific steam engine #1720.
Over the last few months the museum has been working with Diane Deal Tollefson in receiving and the home for a large collection of old photos by her grandfather Ora C. Deal. The museum is working in conjunction with the Great Northern Railway Historical Society and the Soo Line Historical Society allowing them to scan the photos before they are stored at the museum. I have posted some of the GN photos under Photo Index.
The museum has been donated a 1 1/4" scale mini-train, engine, several cars, lots of track and accessories. We are in the process of arranging pickup and delivery to our property from a location in Montana.
