We are honored and excited to start restoring this historic locomotive thought to be the oldest horizontal boiler steam locomotive in the U.S.! Trains Magazine dropped by last year to speak with KXHR's general manager, Scott Ogle, and G&O's Chairman of the Board, Pete Claussen, about the Mississippi- check out that video here.

Stayed tuned in the coming months to see the progress being made by local artist Jim Donahue on this once-in-a-lifetime project!
