Just had a ride on it! It does five-hour tourist runs out of Stettler, Alberta, round trip to Big Valley (pop 315). Big Valley was for the first half of the previous century a divisional point for Canadian National Railways. All that remains of those days is the ruins of the old roundhouse, the station and a bunkkhouse, both well-preserved.
Runs are done with 6060, an older, smaller steam engine, and an early diesel.
For a 1944 engien, 6060 is one smooth-running piece of machinery.
