Re: Old train depot in Allen

Everett Lueck

The locomotive is former Lake Superior and Ispeming #20.  The town bought it from one of the owners of the assets of bankrupt Iowa Pacific and hired Steven Butler of Morton Locomotive and machine works to do a minimal cosmetic restoration, building and supplying certain parts and to move it to Allen last year.

My daughter used to live in Allen.  She was there last night for a meeting at the replica depot and saw this beauty.  It wasn’t there the last time I drove by the depot, maybe 3 years ago.

Anyone know where the town got it?
