On Wednesday, October 6, 2004, the X-294 caboose was moved from Henry Welzel's property in Puyallup, WA to trackside in Skykomish, WA. X-294 now resides next to the ex-GN Sky depot. Eventually, this caboose will find a permanent home at Scenic, WA as a display for the Iron Goat Trail group.
Come along and see X-294's new place of honor beside the former Great Northern mainline.

Update: On Sunday, January 9th, 2005, Baolu and I revisited the X-294 to get some "snow pictures". Here's three additional pictures to see how X-294 looks in the white stuff.
