As Bobby had mentioned in reply #486, we are at work on our final bridge followed by two progress photos.  
The bridge has been in place for many years now.  It was initially used as a means to get the Kubota over the creek aiding the creation of the Lewis and Clark Division as we know it today and letís not forget a major portion of the trestle.  Pete welded rail to the metal deck at its inception.  It was not till the winter of 2009 that rail was actually connected on either side.  It was then the mad dash to connect everything together and retransform the railroad to its current track plan just before the 2010 unmmet.  This photo shows a view of it looking from Nancy station in the summer of 2007.

This bridge shall finish the bridge construction chapter at the BCRR... as the county seemed a bit jealous when they came out to inspect the home Pete had been building.
Seeing as how nothing of major construction related is left in the Lewis and Clark Division, the suggestion was brought up by Bobby to finally finish the last bridge.  Pete agreed and the work began with some angle cut-offs that Bobby purchased.

The second side attached, all angle iron trimmed down, sheet metal ends chamfered off at a 45 degree angle.  The bridge is waiting on the top angle iron to dress the sides off.

Easter being such a beautiful day and Pete having adjusted the throttle on the Mohawk made for a great day to take it out and run around the railroad as seen below as it is running over the bridge coming from the Lewis and Clark Division looking towards Pivo Junction.

And what do you know...
the following weekend, when that small end-of-season get together for our northern friends heading home for the summer was held...the weather was equally nice.  
So why not catch Pete running his Hudson around the railroad before he turned the honors over to some of our lucky snow bird friends.

There were smiles aboard every train.  Here is spotted Linda and Bobby...although sources tell me that Linda would much rather operate the steam locomotive now!  Good luck Bobby getting your 0-6-0 back, so I guess he has to get started on his next steamer!  Thank you Mary Calandro for the picture.

Ron's son, Cody, was another one who spent countless hours at the throttle.  He spent the majority of it operating the NW-2.  Thank you Mary Calandro for the picture.

Mary last spotted the Hudson headed over the arch bridge.  It was being run into the late hours by her husband, Mike, who was taking a crash engineers course with Mario behind him.

Well this thread certainly has been quiet. But not from lack of activity at the track to be sure.  
 
Things are starting to pick up here, the Winter crew is starting to arrive. Over the summer Peter, Mario and I were busy with some new project, re-modifications, upkeep and even a beautification project or two.  
 
To be sure, the BCRR will be ready for the 2014 UnMeet. Mario and I will be posting some project updates soon.
 
Only 4 months to go!!!!

Today was Halloween Fun Night at the BCRR. Of course it was in the dark so no photos of trains running. But since it is a Pete and Julia hosted event, there was good food and desserts!
