As of the first day of the season she is running, she has little problem getting up the hill, unlike 192

Back to traditions.. Sporting a new paint scheme resemblance of Klondike Kate 192 in the beginning as rebel railroad. Yellow trim and a star on the pistons. The lights go back where they belong on a WP&Y loco. Nearly everything in the past three years have been restored on her.

I was at dollywood today and ask one of the crewmen about engine 70 and he said that engine 70 will be operating later on this month or in september after the engine has made 18 trips along the route

My family took me on vacations here for 14 summers, my last 4-5 years of going there I rode in the cab. I was at Dollywood 3 years ago and they still allow cab rides. I have rode in both of their engines un countable times. I recomend if you go there just to ask if they still give cab rides.

For the 2005 season, the Radley-Hunter spark arresting smoke stacks have been removed from the Dollywood locomotives.  The park is now using a different device to reduce cinder output.  The Radley-Hunter stacks had been on the locomotives since 1996.
