Saturday October 15th was a great day for fans of Southern Pacific Narrow Gauge. After six years of hard work by the volunteers of the Carson & Colorado Railway, #18 moved on her own for the first time in 62 years!

The Carson & Colorado Railway group has posted a pair of video of the locomotive under steam on Instagram.
