Weekend Steam: Georgetown Loop #12 at Old Threshers

I hadn't visited Old Threshers at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa since 2009, and it was good to spend a few hours there during the Labor Day weekend. I saw many new-to-me machines and could have spent a couple days looking if I'd had the time. The most obvious change that I saw was the Number 12 from the Georgetown Loop in the place of Number 9. I was at Mt. Pleasant in 1966 to witness the first show with Number 9 with Stan Matthews at the throttle. I have the urge to head west so I can hear my favorite Shay's whistle echo off the mountains.
