   Ray,
 
   This may sound unbelievable, but your welding on that boiler makes me "speachless". That is one nice piece of work my friend.
 
   And the pics from the meets. Thankyou so much for shareing. Looked like you plus others were haveing a good time. Great pics.
 
   Take care,  
 
   Bruce

Thanks  Bruce.  I am so glad  you suggested I do a progress report with pics of the boiler project.   It has been fun explaining the  process.   Yes  both train meets were alot of fun.  between the  two meets the raritan was fired up for  12 hours.  Ray III

Ray, we are running out of adjectives and accolades to show our admiration of your boiler building techniques. Those are the prettiest welds I have ever seen.
 
The meet pic's are making me envious, between all the track work and rain, we haven't been able to play much here
