    Mid-Continent's 1385 Steam Task Force is pleased to announce an upcoming open house session Saturday and Sunday, February 15-16, 2014 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The open house will take place at SPEC Machine's Middleton, Wis. location where the 1385's running gear is currently undergoing restoration work. Restoration team members will be on hand to explain the process and answer questions. This event is completely free.

    The open house coincides with Mid-Continent's annual Snow Train weekend taking place as usual at our North Freedom, Wis. location. SPEC Machine is approximately 45 minutes driving time from North Freedom and is only minutes away from the Madison area.

    It will be really cool to see it run again. If you have never heard the 1385 or forgot what it sounds like, here is a recording from Sept 1984 EB into Boone IA for the Pufferbilly Days.
