Pete and Bruce each have their way of firing up the boiler, propane or coal.

His engine set, Bruce lowers the platform to move the Atlantic onto the turntable.

A good day for visitors. Pete loves to show off his railroad and it's engines and who could blame him.

After my run on Pete's Mohawk, we disconnect the cars from his engine and add them to Bruce's consist. Talk about hauling some weight!

The Atlantic growls a little harder with the strain but easily pulls away, cars and bodies and all.

Back at the train shed, Jim Behnke is making more track sections. With Pete's expansion plans, he and the other members will be busy.
