On September 20, 2003, Copper Range coach #60 was unveiled to the public during an Open House at the museum. Visitors were offered guided tours through the car while historical displays on the Copper Range Railroad and #60 were housed under a tent near the car. After the Open House, volunteers and donors for the Copper Range restoration rode in the car to Quartzite Lake with a requisite photo stop at Ulrich Road crossing in perfect late afternoon sun. Upon return to North Freedom, the special continued uptown where passengers disembarked and strolled down to the North Freedom fire station for dinner and a slide presentation on the Copper Range and #60. Hats off to Bill Buhmaster and his crew of 40 volunteers for a wonderful restoration job on #60 and an enjoyable day! Click on the photos for larger images. All photos on this page by Paul Swanson.
