Old Peppersass, the original locomotive of the Mt. Washington Cog Railway, will be making a return appearance.  No longer in steam but a real pioneer.

Yeah, me too.  I enjoy every train show I go to but it's been a long time since I went to one and had my jaw hit the floor when I walked in the door.  This one's supposed to be a stunner.

Ah, maybe next year.
