In 2001, the Community Coalition for the Relocation of the 2252 was formed when a planned expansion at the Fairgrounds made it necessary to consider options for relocating the locomotive. Thanks to the combined efforts of the Coalition, the Roseville Historical Society, the City of Roseville, the Placer County Fair Board of Directors and the community an agreement was reached to place the 2252 on permanent display at the confluence of Atlantic and Vernon Streets in Downtown Roseville.
This was only the beginning of the process. For an in-depth review of the relocation check out the:
