In June of 2017, The Friends of the Milwaukee Road 261 brought 4-8-4 #261 and passenger consist to eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota for a series of employee appreciation and public trips on the Red River Valley & Western. On Friday June 2nd, 261 pulled two excursions from Davenport, ND 40 miles west to Lisbon, ND. Due to a lack of turning facilities on the railroad, one-half of all trips would be pulled by diesel locomotives. A small mechanical problem with the 261 caused her to be sidelined from one of Saturday's trips, but all was made well intime to pull her last trip, a sunset excursion from Breckenridge, MN 35 miles to Kindred, ND and return with the 261 facing east.|
Following four days of succesful excursions both public and private, 261 and train departed Breckenridge on Sunday the 4th to make the 200+ mile trip back to Minneapolis Junction, the home of The Friends of the 261.
