A vintage passenger steam locomotive is chugging through southeastern North Dakota.

The train made a pit stop in Davenport, North Dakota for the Davenport days community celebration.

Its arrival to our area marks the 30th anniversary of Red River Valley & Western, a regional railroad operating in North Dakota.

The train rolled in pulling excursion cars and giving people a rare opportunity to see train travel as it was more than 70 years ago.

Friday, the engine will pull out of Davenport at 6:00 p.m. for a trip to Lisbon and back.

And on Saturday, it departs Wahpeton for Kindred and back.
