Wow! Thanks for sharing. I have traveled Route 66 with my kid several times in the past 12 years. We only make it thru Illinois and Missouri, single mom not alot of money. We always had great times! I'm gonna try and watch for it.

I will be in Granite City on Monday to attend my cousins funeral. So not sure what time the funeral is nor what time the steam train will pass through. Hopefully I can see it. Brings back many memories. I was born in Granite City in 1934.
