I am pleased that I was able to get the 0-6-0 steamed up as well.

hi all,
 
great to see cam and the 'un-crew' out keepin' the rails shiny!
 
bobby:  the bcrr needs some webcams around the place that click pictures on an hourly basis so we can see the track crew at work!  the bcrr is one of the few places where you could make a movie of it and see progress...most to the others, you wouldn't see activity for hours of film.
 
bruce:  sorry to miss the 'un-un-un-mini meet', but once the current batch is ready (august), i'm comin' down to see if i still remember anything about trackwork!  it's beginning to look like pevo2 needs a satellite brewing station...after all, you've got the water supply and the fuel for the kettles.  an ice house and grain elevator can't be far behind?!   also, i was able to digitize the movies that steamheaton sent, so if you haven't, i bring a copy with me.
 
gettin' ta the point i can get back in the shop again!
 
see ya'll soon!

Wow, I got to say I am surprised and a bit humbled by the article in the Summer 2009 Home Railway Journal.  The Editor Matt M. told me he was going to do a little story about the BCRR. But nothing could have prepared me for the full color spread that was done, including the cover!  
 
Thank you Matt.
 
You get used to seeing the track almost daily that you tend to get complacent about certain aspects. The article was like looking at the track for the first time through someone elses eyes.

ErieAtlantic, I think what you guys have going on down at the BCRR is amazing. And I am enjoying reading your posts and looking at all the pictures you and others have taken. And I hope to one day take a trip down there. But right now the wallet says no, so what you and every one else posts will have to do.
 
I, my self, have had few problems under standing your descriptions of whats going on, and I under stand the track plan. I just can figure out what track is done, and what track is not. May be you could, next time you feel like posting the track plan, edit it to show what is done, and what parts you and every one else where working on.
 
Well, keep up the AMAZING work, and I look forward to reading more.

Hey Bruce, those tracks Mario and Ron repaired are a lot older than 2004. They were installed at the current location in 2004 but they were at the old track for at least 3 years prior! Remember we hauled complete sections of track and all the switches from the old place.

Bruce.  sorry to hear that news.  Give my best to Pete and I wish him a speedy recovery.  Warm up his comfy chair so he uses it to get better.

HOO-WHEEE!!! This is too much fun!  
For clarification:
The parallel tracks at the bottom will travel from left to right
The single track will travel right to left
The pivo pair will be opposing traffic with the top track going right to left and the one closest to the wind mill going left to right.

The BCRR interlock.  This is just one of many crossing on the new BCRR track plan.  This one though will need a pretty major signal system to protect it, which raises some interesting concepts on how to build it.  As for the finally trackplan there at the BCRR, I believe that the NW-2 will be facing the other direction at the crossing.  (Correct me if I'm wrong track guru's)
 
Also, thankyou to all the BCRR track gang and group.  I really enjoyed my day out there and I hope to get back South again soon.  I'm currently making some rough drawing and checking parts to see how I could fix that chain from slipping...  
 
I'll go tomorrow and find you guys so relays and LEDs for some signals and other misc things for down there...

Hey Bruce,
   How cute. I stopped out today to work on my locomotive and looked around and was VERY impressed. I can't wait for the Christmas run.
