Bruce, thanks for the info.  Just wondering as #7 doesn't.   CLL #4 has a ball valve and #24 will have one when it gets done.

Pete and Bruce, thanks so much for the hospitality. Pat & Liz talked about it all the way to Cozumel. They both thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the ride. Again, our sincerest gratitude.

Bruce,
   That's a beautiful train, but I'm afraid you are going to have to go talk to the type writer.

A couple new projects are in the works at the BCRR:
 
1) Pete, Mario and I have started installing sides to the flat deck bridge. These are the low girder style. besides looking better this should help stiffen the bridge as well.
 
2) The winter crew has started trestle maintenance by replacing worn out decking.
 
3) The scale building construction crews have been busy with their latest creation.  
 
So the meets may be over but there is a lot of activity going on. I will be posting photos as I can.

Pete, Mario and I worked on the plate girder bridge today. This is the last of the three main bridges that was never finished.

A month has passed...  
 
The coal smoke has dissipated, the ash pit emptied, piles of ash pressure washed away from the steaming bays, all the emptied left-behind coal buckets gathered...and most certainly new fond memories were created in many live steamers hearts!
 
Well, to be honest, that had all taken place well before now!  But that certainly does not mean that nothing happens after the last live steamer pulls out of the driveway here at the BCRR.  As Bobby previously mentioned, projects are abound.  As most surely can surmise, we rarely have a dull moment here...i guess as a result many great thanks and additional photos have been lacking...

Yesterday, Peter and Julia hosted a small end of season get together for our northern friends who will be heading home for the summer. I did manage to get some photo's but not of everyone. The Hudson was steamed up, as well and Bob Dean's Erie K5 pacific. We even had the BCRR NW2 and Momma's critter out there. (What!!!! Diesels tee hee).

Pete with his Hudson and Mohawk.
 
Mohawk update- the throttle issue has been resolved. Evidently it wasn't sticking but rather it was going past off and reopening. Pete has fixed this by adding a stop.

Ron and Karen Apt (and Mario photo bombing   ) enjoying a ride. Ron's 9 year old son Cody was engineer. The little guy did a great job running the NW2 for many trips around. He is a natural!
