When I went to South Dakota few weeks ago I heard that the 1880 Train has acquired a second 2-6-6-2T locomotive.  This one is Weyerhaeuser #108, sister locomotive to #110.  She is undergoing restoration and should be operational sometime in 2018.  So pretty soon you can expect to see double heading in Hill City, SD!

#110 for reference:

I really need to get out there when they're running. The only time I've been there was in October and they were done for the year.
I live VERY near where these ran in Weyerhaeuser service...
