PM 1225 schedule?

Postby MikeF » Sat Apr 23, 2005 7:12 pm

I'm planning to chase Pere Marquette 1225 on its upcoming excursion May 21 and 22. A very basic schedule is on Lake Central Rail Tours' Web site here. I know past trips have had several photo run-bys, so does anyone have a detailed schedule for this year's excursion?

Pere Marquette #1225, and the Michigan Steam Railroading Intsitute, are tricky. I have heard that times and shedules change often to fit in connection with the TSBY RR, in which the excursion take place so I am not for sure.

Thanks for the reply, but the trip is over. Anyway it went nice and slow and I was able to chase it the whole way and shoot it at a total of 17 different locations. It was a great trip.

The film is still at the lab right now, but when I get the slides back and get around to scanning them, I'll drop you an e-mail.

Thanks. You should go a visit the Steam Railroading Ins.! I hear that there are other locomotives too.
