Just came across this video. Sounds like they've got the blower pretty cranked, all the more so considering it's while the engine is working steam on the steepest grade of the line.

P.S. I take it that dumpy-looking box behind the cistern is where they hide the CPU?

My wife and I have returned home from a visit to WDW. We were there 10/4 - 10/10. One of the first evenings found us at the MK and the WDWRR was still running. We were able to ride the last train of the evening boarding at Main Street and disembarking at Fantasyland. Since I was too busy recording video of the train pulling in to MS, it wasn't until we reached Frontierland I realized Lilly was our motive power.

She looks and sounds wonderful.

Upon arriving at Fantasyland I had just enough time to reach the front of the train and a brief moment to talk with the fireman. When asked about how she is working, he responded with a thumbs down. Said the day prior she had 34 shutdowns and the new monitoring systems have made her fussy to operate.

Curious to hear what others have heard or experienced.

It's pretty much the same thing I've been hearing since she returned. I agree she's still beautiful all around.

Do you remember what day of the week it was that you saw and rode her train? It's my understing that she's used only if they need that third train on the mainline on busy days, like weekends etc. Last time I was there was Tuesday May 9th, and I was hoping to see her again but no luck.

I sure do remember which days Lilly was out. The night we rode with Lilly was Sunday night 10/8. She was out on the mainline on Tuesday the 10th too, along with Roger. The first night we went to MK was Wednesday 10/4 and just missed Roy for the last run of the night.
