      Railway looks spectacular. I wish I didn't live so far away (SoCal). I'd love to join the fun.

      Just got unloaded. We got a late start from the campground today with Ric and Jan following into Connecticut. Had a nice lunch in Sturbridge, MA, but with all those factors and traffic too it was after 5 by the time we arrived at the CVSRy. Ric and Jan only had time for a short tour and a quick run of the buggy. They were going to try and make the campground near Port Jervis by dark.
      I'll try and go through pictures tomorrow and post a few up.

      We had a great time and can't wait to do it all again next year!

      We got back to Carlyle and our home campground on Wednesday evening about 5 pm. Have a few pictures to post, when there is time.  Great trip, thank you to everyone.  Fantastic railroads, thank you all for sharing.

      Finally got the camera dumped last night. Here is the first batch.

      Friday morning, Rick and I drove up to All Pomeroy's RGS of New Hampshire. We both had a great time running a train each direction on Al's wonderful indoor / outdoor railroad. We were pretty busy so only a few pictures were taken, but unfortunately I had my camera set to the wrong mode and didn't notice until we were almost ready to leave. I managed to salvage a few, but they aren't quite up to my standards.

      Here CVSRy Shay #5 makes it's way across Bridge 45 with a string of cars bound for Ophir...

      Al has built most of his switching sections indoors in both his basement and his barn. Here is a rather underexposed shot of Ric and Al in the basement...

      I figured out the camera screw up in time to get a good shot of Al's interchange shelves. I like the idea of a raised center Vs cutting groves in the shelving...

      Later in the day we headed to Bob's. I have a few shots of the Friday and Saturday that I'll post soon..

      And here are the rest of my pictures.

      We arrived at Bobs around 3 on Friday and quite a few were already there. My pictures will concentrate more on the people as you've already seen lots of the railroad and the ops.

      Here Don Howard (left) explains the meaning of life to Bob McCown and Joe Lupinski...

      Maggie runs CVSRy Porter #3 and Caboose #10 around the layout with Bob, Andy and Ric in the background. Unfortunately the stack on #10 was just a bit too tall for Bob's only tunnel...

      Another accidental underexposure due to a setting goof, but I had to post Joe Lupinski's beautiful UP diesel set. Joe with his back to us and Marilyn Radder and Jan Golding way in the background...

      Bob's new coaling tower. Note how securely it is fastened to the benchwork!

      CVSRy #3 and #10 take the siding at Dead Rooster Gulch while Jeff's nice Rockwall Canyon passenger train makes the circuit...

      Everybody's favorite part of Saturday Ops was lunch! I don't know all the names, but I'll give it a shot. In strict left to right: Old friend of Martha's,  Jan Golding? Don Howard, Don's wife, unknown, Bob's son Will, Al Pomeroy, Martha McCown and Stu Moxley...

      Paul Norton, Doug Matheson, Deb's sister and Deb Ames...

      Jane Clarke and Bob McCown...

      Andy Clarke giving Ric some grief during the afternoon session...

      And Ric Golding giving it right back with Andy and Jane...

      Between trains Ric listens intently as Paul explains something in great detail...

      Stan Ames and our host Bob discuss the finer points of working the car float...

      Meanwhile, Al and I have arrived and prepare to work the float...

      Still working...

      #5 at the station repositioning our caboose...

      The reworked Goodson's Batteries and Salmon's Coal are looking really good; especially with the freshly pruned Alberta Spruces thanks to Sean McGillicuty...

      Now it's Ric's turn to ponder switching the car float...

      Doug works the new puzzle at Oakhill...

      And finally; the diabolical track work at Majestic...

      I didn't take any pictures on Sunday at Stan & Debbie Ames' session. I was having way too much fun!
