Default Steam (but not boats) out of Rock Isl in Sept

Since some on this list are also interested in steam trains, I thought I would mention that some steam railroad excursions out of Rock Island & Davenport in September have just been announced. What is really unusual about these trips is that they will be pulled by doubleheaded Chinese 2-10-2 locomotives that have just been imported from China. The trips will have coach and first class seating and one is a dinner train. Here is the schedule:

Thursday, Sept. 14 Dinner train out of Rock Island.
Friday, Sept. 15 Round trip Rock Island to Homestead,IA.
Saturday, Sept. 16 Round trip Rock Island to Bureau, IA.
Sunday, Sept. 17 Rock Island/Davenport to Muscutaine & return.
Sunday, Sept. 17 Muscutaine to Fruitland, IA with return to Muscutaine.
After Muscutaine trip returns, Rock Island passengers re-board for return to Rock island.

Tickets & info at: www.261.com or www.visitquadcities.com
or by phone at 651-765-9812

As of 6:49 AM today, the excursions don't seem to be posted on these web sites so check back later or call the phone number 10AM-4PM.

I have no connection with this operation or it's sponsors. Just posting as a matter of info if anyone wnats to go.
