Greg, the pond and waterfall are in the Pivo area so like everything else there, it too has gotten named after Pivo.

Thats the place! Now picture it with a larger area of raised dirt around that which will house the new G-gauge track.

Looking good!  If you get the G gauge track up and going, I may need to start bringing some engines down.

   Henry,
 
   BTW, I took this pic of the back of one of my BCRR shirts. A better pic than the one in Sonoma.

 
Here's a classic version done in the NYC font.

Henry!!!! That is beautiful. Somehow, even with all of the design effort we have put into this, I never once pictured it in the 3 color scheme. I love it!  
 
Hmmmmmmm, I am picturing some repaint & lettered freight cars.

Hey Bruce,
I think you and Pete and the others should take a little time off, and just "polish" the rails for a while!  You deserve a break!  
Let's see, what have you built:

    Long mainline run (check)
    Double track (check)
    Bridges (check)
    Crossovers (check)
    Grades (check)
    Sidings (check)

If you get bored and need something new to do, you could always dig a tunnel or something....

To the Great Un-Members of the Buckingham.  Your continued progress and teamwork exemplifies the way this hobby should.  Looking forward in seeing everyone again.  Congratulations on a job well done over the past year.  I am sure that this Un-meet will be as always, one to remember!

Hey guys,
 
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at BCRR for their 6th annual steam-only meet, and saw history being made with a ridiculously awesome long train. Below is a link to album #1 I shot on Feb 24th. You can view album #2 if you go back to my Webshots homepage.

SWEET!  That looks awesome.  I think, to my knowledge, this is the first time we've ever lined up the fleet of 'diseasels'?  Kinda interesting to see the sizes of them across the board.
 
Jim, Beautiful pictures!

To Bruce and Dean,  
 
Thanks for the kind words guys. It was my pleasure documenting the event. Always enjoy myself at BCRR. Y'all are a fun gang to be around and make us non-steam equipment owners feel very welcome.

Gianni will be designing track changes before we know it.  But really Mario could you not let the poor kid play with his own toys?

That's awesome!  Yeah, he took off with the 44T underneath my feet the one day!  Guess it's time to start pulling the key every time I get off.  
Now we need some more EOT's/FRED's made!
I'm sure he'll enjoy his loco as much as I enjoy mine, we'll get him switching cars in no time with it.

Good to see you back, Bruce. Ol' Moosey and I were discussing what you might be up to.

Bruce,  That is a GOOD deal from Pete.  That will save a shoulder when done.

Sorry to see that, Bruce. It looks like it could have been a lot worse, but you Buckinghams took it in stride and got it handled. Good on ya.
