The Minneapolis & St Louis RR #457 steam locomotive shelter gate is open for tours during weekend afternoons by volunteer help during the summer season. (Weather permitting) Year around, the site is available to the public for viewing and education by historical signage on-site. The "Cannonball" as it is known by locals, is in a beautiful garden setting next to an extensive playground for children. Stop by for a breathtaking view of early 20th century steam power!
