Here's some more of the pics I scaned from past B&O All Aboard Days.
 
This is continuing from 2000's weekend. Photo is taken from the rear of the Mt. Clair Caboose Special as we approch Carol Siding in front of the Historic Mt. Clair Mansion.

Sitting at Carol Siding were the Lafayette Replica coupled with her Imlay coaches and the Tom Thumb Replica understeam. Also around were Civil War era gunman doing verious demontrations thoughout the day. The William Mason & Mt. Clair Caboose special (headed by SW1 633) would stop hear on the trip back to the museum to drop passengers off.

Here's a pic taken in the museum backyard where the current Outdoor layout is. The Chesapeake Allegheny Live Steamers (club I belong to) used to get up portable track to have rides on at the event. Recent insurance issues (yes this great steam day addition will be no more ) have prohibited our opperation at the museum. (Once again this is on the museums side not ours ) It was fun while it lasted.  
 
The loco's run our both coal fired models runing on 71/2 inch track. In 2000 locomotives were:

and Rick Steffe's Ten-Wheeler http://www.calslivesteam.org/walbash.htm

That's all for old All Aboard Photo's but when I found those I also found this postcard of the William Mason in its original paint sceme. Personally I think painting it green was a good call. What do you guys think?

O.K. this is me trying to sound like a movie trailer announcer.  
 
There was a time before the Strasburg Railroad dummy Thomasís with side rods and air whistles, a time before the H.K. Porter steaming Thomas with moving eyeballs, and a time before sir toppem hat was in a costume. Be afraid, be very afraid. For what I am about to show you may loose you some I.Q. points. Railfanís of all ages, you are about to see the first Thomas used by HIT entertainment for Day out with Thomas. The first Sir Toppem Hat in front of him posing for pictures. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Thomas the Tank at the B&O Railroad Museum 1999!
 
Yea they tried to fool kids with that!

HAHA That was my first year at the museum, I'd only been there about 3 months and it was my first Thomas event.  That thing was, I believe, a plymouth diesel critter dressed up.  Apparently it was even able to move under its own power, although it wasn't really strong enough to pull anything else.

Yes! However, the flag on left sure doesn't look like the MD state flag. Maybe I'm blind or something, but after living in the state for 17 years, I know there is suppose to be some red and white in that state flag.
 
If only we could see the William Mason look like that again...

I couldn't agree more. The William Mason looks sharp in the green paint scheme she's in right now. I even like the lack of a number plate. It looks very authentic considering many locomotives of the Civil War era didn't have number plates.
 
I hope they leave her the way she is right now.

Your right loco's did go by names rather than numbers back in those times. At the time of the Great Locomotive Chase "The General" was only that, THE GENERAL! The number three was not added I believe until a few years down the road. Glad you all enjoyed my pics!

BTW. Here are some pics of a more respectable Thomas the tank in Balmer (couph the one that BOMX_1200 should be firing, couph)  
 
It's alergy season!

How bout one with Thomas's full face! Hey BOMX_1200 why does Thomas always have the Caboose right behind him. Is it for the crew? Also where is the coach in this pic now. I rode in it and it was nice!  
 
That's all for now!

Great Pics. What is the coach behind the B&O Caboose?

It appears to be a Western Maryland Scenic Railroad coach, likely 845.
 
My question is: what's a WMSR coach doing behind a caboose behind Thomas?!!?

I hate seeing The General the way she looks right now. Not that she looks bad, but it's a post-Civil War depiction of her. It's not accurate to the way she actually appeared in 1862 which IMO looked more unique and awesome.
 
I wish that someday someone will put up the money to restore her to the way she looked at the time of the Andrew's Raid ( different shaped funnel stack, horizontal iron cowcatcher, footbridge parallel to wheels instead of above them, etc. ).  
 
 
 
 
 
- Oh, great pics BTW. Love the photos of Lafayette.

In the dark ages before MARC donated our current coaches and before we built the open cars, we used to borrow coaches from the Western Maryland Scenic for Thomas.  When Thomas pulls more modern coaches it is helpful to have a spacer car as those coaches have quite a bit of overhang in tight curves and Thomas does not.  We wouldn't want him getting all cheeky and derailing now would we?
