Here is one in the station, note the brick work is only half completed. It took me a while to scavenge up enough pavers to finish the job.

Bobby,
Thanks for the pics of the early BC. Pet had a lot more grass to mow back then!
 
Bruce,
I'd like to know a LOT more about that wig-wag signal: mechanical and circuitry.

Bobby,
   COOL PICTURES!!! It's amazing how far things have evolved in such a short amount of time. It truly speaks volumes for the work of the founding un-members of the BCRR.

Wow!  You guys have really been making progress!  It's amazing to look back at those photos, looks like a completely different place back then.  You should check out the google maps, satellite view of the place, it's way different back then too!  
 
The government needs to take a look at the BCRR.  The BCRR creates a job and place for anyone who wants to get involved.....  hahahhaaa  But it's true.
 
Looking great guys, see you hopefully in a few weeks...

Attached Image is the updated (updated far as this weekend..hahahaha) track plan for the BCRR.  It's a CAD file so if anyone wants it in the future, let me know.

Dean,
   Nice work. It looks like there's plenty more room for future trackage.

Ha!  I was thinking about doing one that's a joke and putting all sorts of tracks everywhere but I figured it would confuse people too much.  I did a bit of figuring on a new yard that we had talked about, I think it might fit pretty close in there.

That's great news, Bruce. I well remember the flood photos of a couple of years back. Man, time flys....
 
Clam lake activity, today, has been called on account of crappy weather. Just can't seem to generate any "want to".

I can't think of the last time I posted on railfan.net let alone this board but how refreshing to see this thread going strong. I shouldn't have been surprised though knowing Pete, Bruce and company and all their tenaciousness and love for trains. I've been reading all the posts, catching up on all the work the BCRR has done since I last visited and I'm enjoying seeing all the progress the group has done. It's especially nice to see that hospitality has not been lost for the group as well but maybe that's why it is so successful, there's always been an open door policy followed by a friendly smile and good conversation. I doubt I'll ever be back Bruce but seeing the photos and YouTube videos will have to do.

What a great shot, Bruce. Were it not for the boat seats, there's not much to give the scale away.
 
Thanks,

Looks and sounds great guys!  It's so neat to see the yard full.  I really enjoyed working in the yard, shuffling cars around during the meet.  Can't wait to see it in a few weeks!

thanks, Bruce, for showing some of the "behind the scenes" work that make something like the BC a workable railroad.

That's okay, Bruce. For the next several weeks you can serve as the UNofficial UNclub historian. You just relax, or those mother hens will duct tape you to the hammock

That would be an interesting use of duct tape.  I could see a case used up to hold Brucey real tight.

Bruce probably wouldn't mind as long as his good pivo drinking arm was free.

hi all,
 
bruce:  thanks for posting the pictures!  i'm 'green' with envy!   what a special day for them and the bcrr...it doesn't get any better than that.  with all the research i've done into 't's, i hope that the car guys will return again and again!  great to see the ole wagons putt-putting on their own power.  their engines unique sound are music to my ears.   they certainly prove that resourceful mechanics are still required to keep the world turning.  the '12 model t is 2 yrs shy of its 100th birthday...amazing!  for those too young to know, the ford model 't' got around on less than 20 hp...like i said, amazing!

Many happy returns to all three of you "youngsters"!
 
Thanks for the pics, Bruce. You know that I love the old iron!
