Feel the ground shake beneath your feet as you see, hear, and ride behind some of the most powerful locomotives ever built! Ride and see some of the less frequently run and rare diesel locomotives at IRM. Santa Fe FP45 “Warbonnet” locomotive 92 will be under power for its first time at Diesel Days and Rock Island GP7R 1506 will be in operation following its stunning restoration. Bring your camera and enjoy the weekend!
The 2018 Diesel Days event on August 11th and 12th will take on a different format this year. We will not have the parade of power as in previous years. Instead, there will be a set schedule of the four different trains running each day. The locomotive used on each train will be changed often. The date-specific links below include a schedule of the locomotives that will be on each train each day.
