TriviaEdit

No. 29 is sometimes placed on static display at the Grand Canyon.

No. 29 hauled the very first train from the Grand Canyon in the Spring of 1990.

No. 29 also pulled the Grand Canyon during the winter but only when No. 18 is under restoration.

In 2006 and 2016 it doubleheaded with Grand Canyon Railway No. 4960.

Immediately after being returned to the LS&I, #29 was sold on to the scrap dealer, the Ishpeming Steel Company.

As of 2016, No. 29 is out of service.

When the locomotive arrived at the Grand Canyon Railroad in 1989, it was not intended to operate; instead, it was put in the shop for a restoration to working order.
