The Board is excited to announce that the GNRHS has entered into an agreement with the Minnesota Transportation Museum to allow for the use of our Great Northern SD45 #400 ‘Hustle Muscle’ on their excursions trains out of Osceola, Wisconsin starting this summer. This agreement will allow Hustle Muscle to “stretch her legs” keeping her in operational condition.
The 1966 EMD-built locomotive will be used on a steady basis for the benefit of both organizations, and will often be seen alongside her EMD production-line companion Great Northern SDP40 #325. Both engines’ builder numbers are only one number apart (builder no’s 31597 and 31598).
The agreement with MTM will last through October 31, 2016.
Please keep an eye on this website and the MTM website for schedule information.
