WSOR Santa Special
SOO 2-8-2 #1003
Nov. 11, 2006
Burnett, WI

The WSOR operated this Santa Special from Horicon, WI to Burnett, WI to stage for the entrance of Santa Claus to the Christmas Parade. Upon arrival in Burnett, the engine was positioned for coaling with the aid of a track-hoe. The temperature was just below freezing with about 4" of snow. What a beautiful day to shoot a steam powered Santa Special. This is a Christmas scene, little kids, steam, and snow.
