Dirt the Railroad Cat King of the Shops at Nevada Northern Railroad

August 14, 2019

Every so often there’s a feel-good story
really worth sharing. And this is one of those stories. This is Dirt. Dirt is about 11 years old. He was born in a wooden crate in the boiler shop, which we’ll go in in a moment. He’s fixed so we don’t have any kittens running around. Don’t let Dirt’s looks deceive you, he’s a
very loved kitty cat. 😻 She gets a bath every once in a while but it doesn’t
last very long before she’s not covered in coal dust again.🚂 We’ll actually fire up the crane for that too we’ll take the crane out and do demonstrations. There’s two weeks in February where we have the locomotives hot. While they’re hot, Dirt will get up in the engine and lay next to the firebox and lay somewhere close and stay warm all night. Or we’ve got two big propane heaters in the shop and he’ll just go lay in front of them. if you’re interested in
meeting dirt, what I heard is that she gets really curious when she hears the
tour’s coming through the engine room she usually comes out to get petted if
you just crouch down and hold your hand out she’ll come to you. 😺 Dirt even has her
own merchandise just check out the Depot store for more info 😸 Hope to see you again sometime dirt As for us we’re back on the road We’ll catch you guys later, bye Don’t forget to subscribe and you’ll be notified when I add new content. Thanks for watching! 😸👍

    I'm pretty sure I've drank some coffee that was made from dirt through the years. LOL Neat little clip, thanks Pam.
