    Talk about a photo op! Denver has resurrected the State Fair Train from Denver to Pueblo, and to kick it off, the locomotive will be a Challenger from the railroad museum, refurbished to running condition by the UPS shops!

    A quick Google says it's just 3985, not a newly-restored Challenger.

    Media reports and the accompanying photo match the Challenger from the museum. After I've actually seen it, I'll have the definitive answer.

    I was just watching a video on Challenger 3985 this weekend. I love to pop train videos in while I work on my layout. That's some impressive engine. Either way, it looks like you'll have a great opportunity for some photos.

    According to the media here, the loco was refurbished by the UPS shops for this trip.

    I'm already shopping for a good digital camera! :thumb:
