   This little video has notheing to do with "live steam size" engines. It does, however, have everything to do with special things happening in my life that I am so grateful for. But, the regular engineer in this cab is a live steamer. And has build a beautiful #12 Tweetsy engine in 1 1/2 inch scale. Just happens he is qualified to maintain and run 1-1 size steamers also. This video shows what happens when one "real" live steamer meets another "real" live steamer. There is no bull or make believe in that cab. Its the real McCoy.  
 
   Another one of those special opportunities that has come my way that I will be for ever thankful for.
 
   Take care, enjoy

That's a great video, Steve.  I visited PLS for the meet last fall and, thanks to Tropical Storm Ernesto, there wasn't much chance to ride.  Seeing your video makes me want to go back.

   Fellows,
 
   This is a short video of a mega train that was put together at the Largo Central winter meet 2000. We just assembled cars as they came out of the yard. No special placement in the train. There should have been ninety six in the train, but it seems that I bliped some out as I edited this. There were about three hundred folks there to witness this, so I don't think I can be too far off in the count.  
 
   The engines were a Saturated Steam 4-4-2 E6 Atlantic, completed and owned by Mr. Ed. Archer of Fl., an Allen Ten Wheeler 4-6-0 built and owned by Mr, Dave Johnson of Va. and last but certainly no least is an Allen mogul 2-6-0 built and owned by Mr. Bruce Saylor, of Pa. At the time of this video, all of the engines were burning coal.
 
   These are three very ACCOMPLISHED live steamers. It is my honor to call them friends. I hope you all enjoy this little video clip.
 
   Take care,

Hi Bruce,
 
Well, you certainly had enough Cabeese there.  
 
I believe if you look closely you will see one of the cars carrying the kitchen sink. Very impressive.

Bruce, Dave, and another guy Pat all from our club have identical Ten Wheelers.  Out at Train Mountain in Oregon this past June, they triple headed with 39 cars.  We also have another guy Bill that has a 2.5" K-36 with 19 cars, which was also an impressive sight.
 
Also out at TM, there was a train triple headed by an Atlantic and two Northerns that ran with 97 cars methinks.
 
Very impressive video as that is a large train for Largo.  The cabooses on the end is the icing on the cake.

I remember talking to Dave about Coal vs. Oil.  He ran coal in the Ten Wheeler for about a year or so and then found that oil worked better for him.  I ran his engine out at TM and we put a ton of miles on it.  They only problem though I couldn't make it up the 3.2% grade because I would get 1/2 the way up, wheels would slip, out goes the fire, loose pressure.  I primarily learned how to run an oil burner from his engine.  Before the trip, I really never ran an oil burner before that.  I have not really been around Dave until recently due to our TM trip as he lives in VA and only comes up to PA for our Memorial and Labor Day runs.

Bruce,
 
I just watched over your "Bridge Saga" again, and I paid a lot of attention this time. It's really great that you fellas are doin' stuff like that, and the bridge you've built so far is utterly impressive and outstanding! I'm sure upon completion it will be one of the landmarks of the railroad! Once again thanks for posting those - and hah... You running a gasser!? Preposterous! Blasphemy I say! Ha-ha...  
 
And those clips of 7597 are great as well - but I'd love to hear that whistle more often!!!  
 
And those coaches are beautiful, it's a shame the man in one of your clips is getting the first stages of Alzheimer’s, really it is... I feel for you....  
 
 
Once again, thanks for the clips!  
 
Joe...

Had my coal fired "G" scale engine running for the first time this weekend!  Here's a short clip taken by my friend Charles Bednarik.
