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.

Mike Sharpe of the Iron Goat Trail group poses with X-294.  Mike organized the move and allowed me to take pictures inside and out.  Thanks, Mike!

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.
