    • Pete,

      Nice!  I love your tram.  We have LGB's Fueriger Elias and the old boy is a family and fan favorite...even when he pulls D&RGW rolling stock!  If we ever do a live steam plunge, I sense a tram.

       

      Aloha,

      Eric

    • Well, it's Spring around here, but you can't really tell the difference in Florida.  It did get cool with a strong N wind this week, so we ain't lying on the beach.

      No, we're running trains on Jack's Calusa Creek.  Here's his MTH GG1.  (Note the billboard, which has been there almost 8 years.)

       

       

      I got out my Stanley, newly arrived from the UK.  Live steam, but so "well used" that it rolls down the slightest gradient until you get some steam up.

       

       

      A few loads made it chuff a little harder.

      OK, the trains are offstage to the bottom of the picture, but this explains why I engage in this hobby at the tail end of the logistics stream!

       

      Spring is coming, folks, but, in the meantime know we admired your photos!

       

      Aloha,

    •    Beautiful pictures everybody!

       

        Shawn, your neat cowcatcher reminds me a Mark Twain comment: "I told the conductor to take the cowcatcher off the front of the train and put it on the back, 'cos at the rate we were moving we weren't catching up to any cows, but there was nothing to prevent them from climbing aboard at the rear."

       

        edit: Twain spelled better than I do!

    • Obviously not county workers, or they would all be standing around drinking coffee while the FNG does all the work.
