Very cool. It would have really been nice to know this was going to happen so we could have gone out and watched it go by. Does anyone have an estimated time of its return trip through Oroville on Sunday?

The train trip was run by Train Trips International and the info from the trip is on their website including the estimated train schedule. It is sold out, unfortunately, and has been for a while. I bought my ticket about four months ago and they were 50% full. I only rode on the way up there and we did indeed fly through Oroville. Was disappointed we didn't at least do a stop at the depot.
I would guesstimate it'll be through Oroville between 12-1 on the return trip. The detector said we had a hotbox on the way up and the air conditioning properly wasn't working in some of the vintage dome cars among other issues that could delay the train.
On the way down WP 2001 will be leading the train on the way back which will make it a very opportune photo opportunity. They'll be stopping somewhere in Oroville to remove that engine though it'll likely be in the yard south of town.
