New Years Day Steam Up
1 January 2012
Slide Show HERE Video HERE
Another New Years day has arrived and we are all thankful for the opportunity to enjoy our hobby for another year. The day was mild (compared to some other years!) and there was a pretty good turnout a the meet.
Here are the photos I took today with some short video coming along soon. I was heartened to see a group of young fellows dealing with their loco. They seemed to be troubleshooting the machine in a orderly manner and I especially like that no adults butted in to help them. Figuring things out for yourself is the best way to learn I firmly believe!

With the sun so low on the horizon only the parking lot was in sunshine.
<< The tall fellow with the cap and sun glasses is the son of Beryl Rosenthal who is Director of the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum. If you have not had the opportunity to visit the museum please make time to do so. www.waterworksmuseum.org The guy wearing the hooded sweatshirt is Alex Karnes (the loco is his) and also seen are Jimmy Connor and Colt Stewart but I don't know which is which.
Last year someone wanted close up of the crossover and I wasn't happy with the photo I posted. I think these are better so I hope that he seem them.
