Remarks & Notes 
GCRY 29 rolls south near Anita, on what could be called it's fourth "rebirth". After a long career on the LS&I in Michigan, 29 wound up in Williams beginning operations in 1990. Being one of the mainstays on the railroad until the middle-late 90's, 29 went down for rebuild in the latter part of the decade. Returning to service once again in 2004, 29 ran until the end of the steam service in 2008 when its' fire was dropped for what most had thought would be the last time when Xanterra axed the steam program at the end of that year. Fast forward to 2016, and following an FRA mandated annual inspection and some other minor work 29 is back once again to help celebrate the centennial of the National Parks Service. And with the boiler certified through 2019, it is expected 29 will share duties with its' sister engine 4960 for the next several years.
