The Soo 2719 is an ALCO H-23 class 4-6-2 Pacific type steam locomotive. The steamer was used by the Soo Line in passenger train service until its retirement in 1959. In 1960, the Soo Line then donated the 2719 to the city of Eau Claire, Wisconsin where it proudly sat on display in Carson Park. In 1996 the Locomotive & Tower Preservation Fund took on the task of rebuilding this beautiful locomotive to operating condition. This video covers the fascinating stages of the two year restoration that brought this steam locomotive back to life. The full 92 minute program highlights include: • Film footage of the last runs in 1959 • The move to Carson Park in 1960 via Soo Line & Milwaukee Road • Wintertime removal from Carson Park in 1996 • Highway transport from Eau Claire, WI to Altoona, WI • C&NW operational roundhouse and turntable! • Various stages of rebuilding in the Altoona Roundhouse • Operating turntable scenes with Soo 2719 & the Soo 1003 • TWO operating steam locomotives in a roundhouse!
