Great Northern Railway Engine #2523 was permanently put on display at the Kandiyohi County Historical Society in October 1965. That was four years before the Kandiyohi County Historical Society opened its doors in May 1969.
To honor the 50 years this awesome machine has been a landmark in Willmar and Kandiyohi County, the Kandiyohi County Historical Society is holding a Engine 2523 Day on October 10, 2015. The day will feature the Choo Choo Bob show and homecoming of current and former railroad employees.
GN P-2 #2523 will be re-dedicated at 2 PM.
Volunteers from the Great Northern Railway Historical Society will be there with a table promoting the GNRHS.
