San Diego Steam Special!

A high speed round trip along the scenic California coast on Sunday, June 1, 2008. Power will be ex-Santa Fe 3751, the engine that pulled the last steam powered train to San Diego in 1953. Work on the trestles is being completed and the trip has been approved by all the agencies involved.

Depart LAUPT 7:45 AM with stops at Fullerton, Irvine and San Diego, Old Town, arriving in San Diego at 11:30 AM, after an enroute water and service stop. The 256 mile round trip includes many miles along the Pacific Ocean followed by a climb up the 2.3% grade of Miramar Hill. Depart San Diego at 2:30, and arrive at LAUPT at 6:30, after another enroute water and service stop.

Question: Is 3751's cab signal system still working?
