WOW is an understatement! Bob the photo's are great. As one of the "crew" that was not present during your visit, I have to say that you have presented the Buckingham Central in a very professional and fresh way. Thank you. With your permission, I'd like to link this thread from our Website. (another) Bob

wow!
 
talk about vision, when you guys plant railroad seeds, boy, what green thumbs!   those are some great pictures coffee!   you have the talent to tell a good story.  for those that aren't familiar with the b-c rr,  you're telling a story worth hearing.   good railroads are a success because of solid team work and a central vision shared by all.  the b-c rr is certainly an example of that.   good foundations, solid construction, and superb maintenance mean worry-free operation for guests.   congrats, guys, i'm envious!  the b-c is a heck-of-a-railroad!

Thanks for the compliments George. It's easy to tell a story such as this when the subject matter speaks for itself.  
 
 
BC, 1100 miles doesn't quite make it closeby. But when Bruce puts out the invitation, he means it. Always a pleasure that when I make the trip, I know I can impose upon Bruce's hospitality

Time to show some of the other power that can be seen at the Buckingham. These two were not running at the time I was there.  
First is Pete's Hudson which at the time of my visit was being stored within the trainshed.

Good to see all that equipment. Pete really has one of the best backyards in the world. I really hope to get down there this summer. Great shots again, Bob.

Right Adam. What good is a railroad if there's no revenue to haul. One last one...

A great weekend at the BC! We had a very delightful visitor and his wife  from Nottingham England on Saturday. He is a 5" gauge live steamer. It is funny, but I have made an observation on how to tell a fellow live steamer from just a visitor. The first time visitor usually has his mouth open and gawks at the cool equipment. Another tell tale sign is the inevitable "how fast will it go?" line of questions. Now the fellow live steamer is easily spotted. He is the one with his face 3 inches from the locomotive talking to himself saying things like "so thats how you did that" or they won't say much at all but just stand there with a glazed eyes and a big smile. Yeah, I admit it, I fall heavily into the second catagory. No matter how much I am around this hobby, I still get excited when I am looking at new equipement or going to a meet. I strongly suggest to anyone wanting to check out live steam, to locate a club in your area, and check out one of their meets.

Yeah BC, mighty nice of you to add the sticky for these threads. Looking at the hits/replies and their numbers, there's obviously interest.

Tom, Speaking for myself, I wholeheartedly encourage you and any other railfan to check out live steaming up close and personal. If there is a club close by, then by all means go check them out and don't be afraid to jump right in and get your hands dirty.  Live steamers are more apt to welcome a newby that isn't afraid to put in some sweat equity.
