      From Eric's post above:

      This is a real working steam locomotive, two foot gauge.  It had been a standard worker at the Edaville Railroad in South Carver Mass.

      My son and I probably road behind it one time in Carver.

      Got a cab ride that time, too :-)

      The attached photo must be 40 years old - taken at Edaville.  And yes, that's me when I was young and handsome.

    • I was there on Saturday morning and was able to meet up with Dan P. We had a nice conversation and I was really surprised at the amount of people who were there. That 20,000 figure was more like the “by 10:00 estimate. When I left at 11:00, the ticket line was about half way back to the parking area. It was a very impressive show for sure. My first reaction to the steam loco was how much work moving it there must have been!

    • Make sure to check out the Monson RR #4 running outside in the parking lot!  This is a real working steam locomotive, two foot gauge.  It had been a standard worker at the Edaville Railroad in South Carver Mass.  We have had it for a year plus at the Wiscasset Waterville and farmington railway museum.

    • Thanks, Greg.

      When I went to enter on my calendar, I already had it written in. Another sign of Old Age.

    • My wife and I, my brother in law and his wife will be there, we are staying from Monday to Saturday at the host Opryland Hotel, and are signed up for the General Jackson Showboat dinner, the banquet on Friday night and the tours each day.

      I will have my AZBTO red vest to represent our club, so a rather large 6’3” guy with a red vest should be easy to spot!!!
