      A number of live steamers turned their noses up at the sight of the Gray Ghost. But Bruce got the last laugh every time he towed one of the stalled expensive live steamers back in.

       

      Still plenty of room in life for the towing home favor to go the other way. But when there is an attitude ya gotta love the comeuppance!

      We have a total run of around half a mile of 7.25" narrow gauge [there is no 7.25" gauge track in Europe], and around 600 feet of 45mm gauge track to run our garden-scale trains on.

      Today my family checked out the Kitsap Live Steamer track that's about 1/2 mile away from our house. My 2 year old (& I) enjoyed multiple runs around the park, and got a tour of the shops. Not much in terms of operational potential, but how many people have a 7.5" gauge track that close to your house, and open to the public for free rides twice a month? Our guide showed me a couple of kit built Shay's, and other rolling stock that looked like an easy way to get started in the hobby. Now I just have to convince the wife...

      Nice kit built Shay...

      Craig,

      There is a lot to do at these clubs, without having to own a unit.  You can get involved and build knowledge and see if you really want to get in to this part of the model railroading hobby further.

      Morning RJ,

      Yep, the more we get involved in this the more we learn about it.  Too much fun in all scales and too little time.
