There comes a time when you must simply enjoy the fruits of your labor. These times don't have to be shared with the whole world. Sufice it to say that I'm glad you had a good time.

We had a very enjoyable time with Pete's guest's on Saturday. Everyone loved the steamers (who wouldn't) and one young man got a real surprise when I threw him onto the back of the diesel and he ran his very first large scale ride on train in his life. I couldn't see since I was sitting behind him, but I was told he had a smile from ear to ear. Here are some photos of that little get together. For us it was a thrill to see both of Pete's engines out there strutting their stuff at the same time.

Wow, I am actually a bit surprised you guys let me get away with the joke on the last photo.  
 
Bruce in the photo you are referring, if you look at it long enough, it looks like I photoshopped you into the scene. It was a weird overcast day without shadows. If I remember correctly, as I was composing the photo you decided to get out of the shot......... too late.

I think we have hit the limits of locomotive size for the transfer table.

To Bruce and all the guys of the BCRR,
 
I really want to thank all you guys for having me. I had a blast.  It was a real pleasure to finally get to come down and see the railroad in real life. Like I told you. "Pictures dosent do the railroad any justice." You guys are the definition of real live steam railroaders and teamwork. And after getting to see the BCRR in real life made me realize how much hard work and pride you put into it. You guys made my first trip to Florida a memory I will never forget. It's defientaly worth the 18 hour drive lol.  I can't wait to come back and visit again. Again I want to thank all you guys for having me over I appreciated it very much.
 
Take Care,
 
Cody Cook

This is a pretty impressive list. Can you stand to add a little 040 Mercer switcher? I would like to attend again at least a day or two. It was built by Mort Tiley of Tavares a few years ago.

Congratulations goes out to Pete's daughter Lyndsay and Mario for the birth of their son Gianni D'Angelo Scartozzi, 8 pounds 13 ounces, 21 1/2 inches. Mommy and baby are doing fine.

That's terrific. Congrats to the proud mom and pop. Pete has to be beside himself.
 
Let's see... Running the Mohawk by age four. Building his own engine by age eight. Helping Bruce on and off the Atlantic by twelve. Walking into the Dean's office, his freshman year at MIT and saying, "Just give me the paper. I've done all this, before." What a childhood this kid has in front of him!
