And for my last pictures at Riverhead, a RR crossing pretecting the Miniature train. The next time I will be at Riverhead will be to volunteer. I just have to wait for them to e-mail me the schedule.
 
This Concludes Part 1: The Riverhead Site Next I went to Greenport by car since there was no LIRR train. It looks about 30 minutes. We first had lunch and pent the rest of our time at Greenport. I got myself a nice RRMLI shirt and hat to wear.
 
Look for Part: 2 The Greenport site tomorrow.
Hope you have enjoyed these so far!
Anthony

A small yard office. Inside is a working typewriter along with a signal control. Next to this is a signal that you can acutely control with the levers inside

And for my last picture I found this in the harbor. It looks like an old Leigh Valley Tugboat. It had the LV logo on it 87
 
Hope you enjoyed my pictures. This topic might be more updated now that I’m a member there

Yo Anthony,
 
Great shots, you must have had a blast.
 
My Aunt lived in Hollis, and near her house they kept several "Jaws", but not with the fancy paint job. We kids enjoyed climbing all over them. Couldn't believe how tall they were.  
 
Another famous story about your mysterious friend photograph. At Universal Studios, California, there are also such displays, but of various movies they had made. Some visitors were coming down the stairs, and this Keystone Cop was just standing there, and one lady passed close by him, he suddenly moved and smiled at her. Yup, he was a REAL mannequin. You never heard such a LOUD SCREAM. We all got hysterical laughing. Fairly common in Southern California to see these Real Mannequins, especially around Hollywood and Vine and the Chinese Theatre. The last one I saw was Chewbaca of Star Wars, he also was real, but never moved, until he wanted to scare the kids or some pretty tourist.

Hi Alan,
 
Thanks for sharing that. It must have been cool it see a number of plows.
 
It is also really funny there is a manikin that scares people. The first time I saw the one at greenport, I was a little surprised by it.

Yes, I joined Saturday at the RR festival. I met John P. and he e-mailed me a schedule for running trains, so I should hopefully be there every Saturday for the next to months.
Hope to meet you!
