Flint's Huckleberry Railroad, with locomotive #152 in the lead, is one of the sweet tarts of scenic train tours. Here, the vintage steam locomotive pushes through a fresh blanket of Michigan snow. Winter white and the engine's coal black paint create a stark contrast along the former Pere Marquette Railway. Still in service, the 1920s locomotive was once a proud engine of the Alaska Railroad. Rescued from the scrap yard in Stockton, California, the reconditioned locomotive (a 4-6-0) became the prime engine for the Huckleberry Railroad over 14 years. Taken out of service for a major overhaul in 1990, the #464 was pressed into service.
