I took a ride on this yesterday along with members Hummel1237 (Jim),Trainwatcher1100 (Bob) and Charlie O.  We boarded at Ringoes and rode to Flemington then Three Bridges and back to Ringoes. It was a pleasant trip and it's fun to get together with other members here. I've met Charlie a number of times and it was my second time meeting Jim, thanks for the tape Buddy, I'll watch it sometime this evening.. Bob it was a pleasure meeting you. All in all a fun day,  
 
What are your thoughts gentleman?

This is my favorite of the thread so far! The whole train, caboose and engine runby shot at precisely the right moment! You're right on! (child of the 70s)
 
Great job on all of them!

Thanks for capturing our day so beautifully, Todd. Wonderful pix!
 
Yes, it was a fun day all right -- perfect no-frost weather, the ride itself, BR&W's super-friendly personnel, Jim's video clips, the "five-minute" mad dash to the Three Bridges deli (thanks again for sharing your sandwich, Charlie), and the opportunity to meet you guys and enjoy it all together.

I agree, what a great time I had! I got the "hat trick" after you guys took off. I should have left but sometimes I just can't help myself! I ended up in, of all places, Cementon PA for the gig. (I'm sure Sir Charles knows where that is) I was running late but as luck would have it the "hall" pushed the start time ahead one half hour for some reason. Whew! That was good for me. Anyway, I got the runby that you know about plus a real nice pull up to the station of the whole train. I stood on one of the cabeese to do it, and like you said, they never said a word about it. Real nice crew! They let me go where I wanted but I never got up enough nerve to ask for a shop tour, next time. I also got them at Cooper Hill crossing on my way home. I had a great day all the way around! It was really cool getting together with you, Todd and Charlie...
 
Your new friend,
 
Jim...  
 
Here's one I got (not as good as Todds') but you get the idea...

Great pix fellas!  A terrific day all around.  Great to meet you Bob and Jim.  Some fine shots of the runaround at Flemington and of the baggage cart at Ringoes.  
 
Will add my pix when they're back from the lab.

Some days, the most interesting person you meet is a river with a train running beside it.

Ah Jim you got the trestle shot, I didn't wait for it. Great job on the pics.   I didn't get to the tape yet but I'm off Tuesday and will without a doubt watch it in the morning. Thanks man.

Not much to add here fellas...you've got the day well covered.  But I'll throw in one shot at Three Bridges...at left center the flagman can be seen at the Xing.

...and one more...an up-close shot of #752 at Three Bridges, about to head back to Ringoes (when the crew gets back from the deli, that is).

It came out better than mine! I want to remove mine! The sun glare was just too much and I even tried to darken it...
 
Very Cool!

Don't.  You got down on the rails for your shot, so it's more balanced than mine.  It's a fine nose shot.

I remember going to 3 bridges with 60 pulling. It was great. I REALLY want 60 to go back into service.
