All thanks goes out to you, my friend.  It was one helluva good time!
 
 
Last pic of the line at Lambertville in the other direction...look closely and you'll see an old blue coach far away down the line...strange...
 
Thanks again,
Colin

I thought I reconized someone yesterday at ringoes, Colin.  Sounds like you had a good day but mine was like the total opposite of yours   .  To start off my day, i went to the New Hope train show, then i headed to the NH&I where the train came in and I reconized one of the guys from the BR&W. Then before my dad and I left we got some fireballs.  once we left New Hope, we stopped in Lambertville and I too agree that the tracks are fine just that they have trees growing in the middle. Then we left and I realized we could see 752 leave Ringoes. You are lucky you got a cab ride. but on the other hand, I finally got to ring 60s bell(after being there like 10 times i just wouldnt ring it). The conductor said that she should DEFINATLY be running by fall if nothing happens. Then after leaving Ringoes yard, my dad and I finally got to have Stewarts and we were racing the train when we had to turn around. While we were there, I heard a train and i was like, here comes 752, but to my surprise it was 8159 the switcher. It has a nice horn but not as good as 752.  Then after stewarts we were heading home and i saw about a 25 car freight train on the Black River track in Three Bridges.  We turned on railroad ave, and I see a Dash-9 on the BR&W tracks.  we were waiting and finally it started coming foward, so we got out and wacthed and all the cars were turning around, one guy was even changing his windshield wipers . As NS was pulling on the main, i noticed another engine, but NS did some more switching moves and then theyleft the one engine down on the BRW and the other half of the train was on the other side of the crossing.(must've been time for a crew change).  
 
Colin, do you got anymore pictures? yours are great. too bad i didnt have the camera yesterday

Colin, very nice pics. I had the privilage of going the BR&W other branch on Sunday: The Bel-Del. For those who haven't heard 1850's horn, you don't know what you're missing. I also swung by WK&S, but that's for another board.

That pic of the car down at Lambertville looks like it was taken looking north up the Quarry Branch.
 
Get your pics while you can. That baggage car might not be there for long...

Hey, NH_ENGINEER, flattery will get you nowhere!  
You're just envious that I'm scarier looking than you are.

The details of the move remain to be determined, but sometime in the near future the baggage car on the quarry branch will be moved either to end-of-track or to Ringoes.

if it is going to be moved, wouldnt that mean the tracks to lambertville have to be cleared, maybe for future use

Was digging through my old BR&W pictures and came across this old picture.  This is me in the Ringoes yard when I was 2 years old, in May 1993.  This was the first time I had ever layed eyes on what was soon to become one of my favorite engines of all time.  It certainly was not my last and hope to see a scene like this again (without me being two years old though).

There's something we don't see everyday!  
 
Well, let's see when this scene can be done again. Now I can't wait to see 60 running again!

And when 60 is back we will all know who to thank.
 
Colin, I have one like that some where when I was just about side rod high, I don't think my folks will let me post it. It was taken the same day of the bellow picture.
