      I was challenged with being "Yardmaster" at "Nelson Yard" on Friday and "Craig Leigh Yardmaster".  If you like to switch, there is nothing better.  Really cool!

      What were you switching ?

      Sure was a lot of action and enjoyment there at Starwood Abbey.  Great hospitality and I guess all are looking forward to 2019. 

        I note the new fence had not been erected.   I also saw the mention of yokels: I didn't now they existed outside Britain.  Must have gone over with the Redcoats.

         Steve has been rather busy...

        Here is the latest of Mike's Blogs, covering the latest operations on the IPP&W, along with a few pictures of a blatant copy of Jon Radder's rust garden (With added p[lants...under development).  There is also boats, a canal, and even a few museum shots...enjoy...

               http://gardenrailroadottawa.blogspot.com/2018/07/session-9-narrow-gauge-ops-of-gardens.html

          Take a break for half an hour and see what has been going on lately, around Ottawa.

      I got to look at the picture-terrific.

      Congratulations!

      Maybe you should start a post in the "other hobbies" forum.

      I'd love to see more, and maybe TAC knows something or links to add:-)

      A great set of photos Steve, in my favourite scale.  

      By the way tell Fred I think the new fence looks fine; a good height it seems.

      Steve McKenzie has be rather busy lately.

         IPP&W Saturday operations have continuously occurred every Saturday since his last notice of "Mike's Blog" being posted.

              Mike's Blog has continued...

                 For the blogs after the last one posted by Steve, just go to that last blog, and use it to link to all the later ones you may have missed.

        I'm sure Steve will continue posting up-dates as soon as he gets over his busy period.
