OUCH!

 
...let pete know that we sympathize with him and to please take care!  i can certainly empathize with him...tried to do the same thing with my left hand many years ago.  thank heavens for a surgeon with a sense of humour...asked me if i was right-handed or left-handed...told him right-handed.  ya know how hard it is to buy two right-handed gloves?  
 
wow!  the interlock tower is spectacular!  i've said it before but is bears out even now...bcrr guys don't let the grass grow under their feet.  name the project and they get it done!
 
'best to all and hope to see ya'll sometime soon!

   Friends,
 
   I don't know how many folks that visit this site have a subscription to Live Steam magazine. By what I've been told, (I haven't seen it yet) there is a very nice, multi page article covering the BCRR. Particularly from the 2012 Un-Meet.  
 
   We certainly appreciate the editors desire to feature the Buckingham Central RR in the current issue of Live Steam magazine.  
 
   Bruce R.

 
I just got my copy of the Buckingham Central RR issue, September/October 2012, of Live Steam and Outdoor RRing.  It is a very nice article covering nine pages with lots of photos and a nice track diagram.
 
For those who don't know about it, you can get a free copy of this issue of of LS&OR from their website as a promo for the magazine. They offer a "No-obligation issue" if you fill out the form at http://www.livesteam.net/noob/signup and I frankly think this is quite generous as the cover price is $7.50. It's well worth it if for no other reason than to see the article on the BCRR.
 
Congrats to the BCRR crew!
 
Henry

Bruce,
 
Looks like the "horse is out of the barn" so to speak.  Looks like BCRR is officially "Big Time".  Great article, you guys deserve the recognition!

Thanks for the concerns guys, but it seems that Issac was all hype and wet! Now we are hoping our friends in the storms path are safe. I have a niece and her family in New Orleans. Ironically the anniversary of Katrina is this Wednesday.

Good to hear that you survives the flooding.
 
Pete's grain elevator is very impressive. I'm looking forward to see more pictures.

Wow, that could be a really big problem! What did Pete do? Flood the boiler, open the cylinder cocks, dump the fire? Ouch...
