      Bluestone Southern's Sept 2021 Ops Sesion

      Just a reminder that our Sept Ops is this weekend, the 25th and 26th of Sept...

      Unfortunately, because of my health situation, I have not been ab;le to do much

      in the way of maintenance on the railroad, however, Jane has been working tirelessly 

      on the railroad and it looks and runs in great shape...  We have had a few Ops test

      runs on it on the past 2 Fridays...  Noon till 5 for those that can/would like to attend...

      Andy;

        I'm saddened by the news of your health problems. I hope that it all improves and you have many, many years of railroading, and fun in the future.   You surely haven't hit anywhere near your "Best Before date" yet; so, chin up young fellow, smile, and imagine I'm there to give you a hand. (And I really would like to do just that, but sadly my long distance travelling days are over)

      I had a chance to visit Andy and Jane's Bluestone Southern for one of the test Ops and the railroad is in great shape.  Clarke Lake is pretty awesome, also.  However, right now its still a little shallow, but there is a lot of beach.  That'll change.  Railroad and property are really coming together.  Put it on your "short list" folks, its a good one.
