Ahnapee & Western Excursion: Engine #988 during the layover at Casco Junction.

This loco was built by Alco in January 1947 for the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad (Milwaukee Road).  After almost thirty years of service on the CMSt.P&P, it escaped the scrappers torch when it was purchased by the Kettle Moraine Scenic Railway in 1976.  It was soon sold to Trans-Northern Inc. which operated the passenger excursion on the Ahnapee & Western.  The #988 was privately owned and leased to Mid-Continent Railway Historical Society from 1986 to 1995, then sold to MCRHS and is now stored at their museum.
