Visit by steam locomotive to bring piece of railroad history to town
WILLMAR — A piece of railroad history is chugging into town Saturday with a visit by the Milwaukee Road No. 261 steam engine.
Willmar is the train’s last stop during a day-long excursion that starts Saturday morning in Minneapolis. The train will use the former Great Northern Railway line, now part of BNSF Railway, on its 186-mile round trip to Willmar and back.
