Dean, lets just say that nice things happen to good people and leave it at that.  
 
Now here is a photo of a very rare sight on the BCRR as anyone who has visited can attest:

Here is one of Andrew doing what Andrew does best..... Running steam.
 
I don't think I have ever seen a person so at home on a live steamer before.

Here is Andrews dad Bob, falling in love with Petes Hudson like so many of us have done before.
 
Bob is a delightful man to talk with. Ironically it was the son Andrew that got the dad into this hobby and now he too is lost to the allure of steam.  
 
I personally look forward to seeing the completion of their planned projects.

OK, so what run day at the BCRR would be complete without a couple prerequisite runs up the unfinished trestle.

Last but certainly not least. I wanted to include a shot of the hardest working guy on the BCRR. Don was an engineer on the Rock Island at the end of steam and beginning of Diesel. He had his turn at the throttle of the Hudson.

I like that catch phrase Bobby . More people need to follow it. Nice pictures. The bridge looks good with a train on it

hi bruce,
 
i'm not positive about when, but late august or mid-september if the city events don't get stacked up against me.  the 1st and 2nd week of september...they slammed me with 7 events.  can't wait to get down there though.  i want to bring the completed bobber and wm cabooses.  if i can get the afternoon weather to cooperate, the legacy erie should find it's way home if september becomes the plan.  i will be calling you by twisted pair after the 1st week of august to comfirm.
 
keep up the great work guys!  it's simply phenominal!

I would love to come down and see some steamers run'in.  
 
I got to put the dates and mark the calendars, I just get soooo busy.

Dean, we don't post the dates since space is limited. We don't have the facilities to handle a very large crowd if everyone decided to stop by at the same time.  
 
If you have any other questions about the BCRR feel free to call Bruce on the phone.

Thanks for the update, Bruce.
 
The last time I was there, someone was talking about the roundhouse. This is going to be exciting and require LOTS of posted pictures. I'm very interested in this project.

Bruce,
You may color me properly impressed. The yard looks great and will be very useful, soon..... Give Bobby a big "Thumbs Up!" It seems his talents are legion.
 
Would I be wrong in wagering that the structural steel, in that roundhouse, will be electrically fused into one piece? When a hurricane comes, everybody's gonna run to Pete's roundhouse for shelter!
 
Way to go, Gang,
Greg B.
