Now's that a cutie!  
I tell ya, the BCRR keeps lowering their engineer training age down there...
(PS-I about died laughing at the reflective stripes back there, the engine may be black but you can't miss it with a flash!)
 
 
That's the cleanest 'wood shop' I've seen, must have been before the project...  
 
Looking great down there guys keep it up!

Hey Bruce,
    What time are you guys going to fire up the engines? It looks as though my wife may come out after all. I spoke with Pete on Sun last week and asked him if I could bring a friend of my wife's out with her 5 yr old and he said yes. Also, do you know it this is a pot luck lunch?

P.S. perhaps we will be able to fire up the Atlantic?

Bruce,
   What do you think the chances are that we will be able to run seeing as there are chances for thunder storms?

Well the weather seemed to behave on Sat. and sort of cleared up by noon, with drizzles here and there. Bruce pulled out a train and pulled Paul a guest from Lakes Park around a few times.

It look like there was plenty of good eats and fun had by all. I'm only sorry that I had leave earlier in the day. Oh well, maybe next time. Now we need to start a thread on the Junction Station.

Guys,
 
As a late comer here and not finding it in this thread, I have been wondering for some time why Pete named his railroad the Buckingham Central.  Is there a story behind that?

Bruce,
 
That was great.  Thanks.  You know how that curiosity thing works.  It has been nagging me some so had to finally ask.

Today we finally had some time to play. We had a Birthday celebration for Pete (today) and Mario (New Years Eve). Pete fired up his Mohawk which really performed well over the new track alignment. Unfortunately my camera batteries died before I could get any photo's of that. We also celebrated the resurrection and firing of Russell's Atlantic.

We had some nice guests at the track today as well, but I cannot remember this nice lady's name (help someone). Julia is riding the last car. This woman's husband, whose name is Guy was running the NW-2 when I shot this. It was his first experience running large scale equipment. I got to say, he was a natural with a nice feel for the throttle.

LOL, sneaky paparazzi! The gentle rocking motion, along with the sounds of the Mohawk chugging along nicely.....well, I couldn't help myself. It was a great ride to say the least.  
 
If you look really carefully you will see Mario and I are sporting new "Kromer" hats courtesy of "un-member" Marv who just returned from the great white north. Thanks again Marv.  
 
Chris surprised us with a visit as well, unfortunately his beautiful engine was being temperamental and he wasn't able to run her.  
 
Our newest and sweetest "un-member" Julia treated the gathering with a great southern BBQ lunch! oh-boy, this is living people, Thank you Julia!
 
One person missing from the photo's that needs mention is Ron A. who while the rest of us were playing, he was diligently installing switch stands & control linkages. While many people have been involved with the new track expansion. I want to say that Ron gets the MVP award for this one. Well done Ron, now when are you going to finish the NW2?
 
Happy 2010 everyone, it is already looking to be a good one.

Bruce,
     I forgot to ask how the "GO, NO GO" went around the track. As, I was otherwise occupied. I also want you to know that I can't thank you and Pete enough for all your help and knowledge that you both have shared with me. You both have created some wonderful memories for me that I will never forget. So, a BIG THANK YOU!!! Looking at the pictures that you and Bobby posted, I do look like the Cheshire Cat. I don't want to forget anyone, so thanks as well to the rest of the crew at BCRR for your encouragement. Well now I guess my next project will be to get those injectors working and the timing. See you around the curve.

Bruce it sure is. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it up this comming week end as I have to work. But hopefully the following week. I have been showing the video to friends and family as well as the pictures.

   Folks,
 
   If you think that I'm streaching a point about the cool (cold) weather we are now expierienceing here in SW Florida, take a look at the pics from just last week end. Posted 1/3/10. Notice we all have either sweat shirts or jackets on. It has been one solid week of cold. Cold for here anyway!!! But, today, it is around 30* with a light rain all day. The cold has acutally stopped me from working on 7597 in my garage, due to how cold it has gotten out there. BTW,supposed to be a low of 29* tomorrow, Sunday 1/10/10.
 
   Welcome to sunny and warm SW Florida !!!!!!!!!!

 
Your low of 29 was our high a couple days ago
