At Rollag Minnesota where the yearly Western Minnesota Steam Thresher's Reunion is held, there is a pond named Gunderson Pond.  It is no relation but it's kind of fun especially when the "Pond Monster" is around.  This year the Monster had a little one.  In this image, 353 pulls a train of passengers past the pond where they can have a view of the "Monsters".


  1. Great image of the small steam locomotive. Looks like it was working hard that day.

    1. They would have just finished throwing coal in for it's trek up the hill. You are not supposed to fire it while it pulls the hill. Yes, the crowds were big that day as well.
