We are still making progress.  It may be slow going but the end result will be worth waiting for.

BTL,
What a great way to break in a shiny new press!  
 
Thanks for the update, Bruce.

Well, this thread has been quiet too long.  We just got done celebrating our third anniversary of the beginning of our 10-wheeler project.  This year though, we did something a little bigger (and better) than our normal meeting.  This year we decided to open the Frog Hollow & Southern to friends outside of the 10-wheeler group.  And let me tell you, we had a grand ole time.
 
On Saturday, the Frog Hollow & Southern played host to a certain motley crew of unmembers from the most prestigious unclub around.  People traveled from long and far to come and share in friendship, coal smoke, and rumor had a little bit of chow.  A grand time was had by all, and let me tell you first hand that it was great to see all of the familiar faces of the BCRR.
 
Ray H. got the Christopher Columbus award for traveling the farthest.  Russel got the Rip Van Winkle award while nodding off during a trip around the FH&SRR.
 
It was great renewing the friendships as well as making new ones.  I trust everyone made it home safe and sound and look forward to the 2012 Unmeet at the BCRR.
 
Here is a photo of Bruce the Smaller running Beauty along the right or way of the FH&SRR.  More photos to come, enjoy!

I just wanted to post a Thank You! to all who helped and to those of you who attended our annual party for the "Steam Team" this year.  Aside from the heat, it was a tremendous time.  I think we ( I for one) achieved a greater appreciation (especially for the behind the scene wives) for the hard work that goes into hosting an event, even one as small as ours. You guys at BCRR really put in the hours to put on a week long event not to mention the costs.  It was great to have the company of the Un-Meet crew at our event to see the Frog Hollow & Southern RR.  We are very proud of this little railroad and were very excited about opening it up and extending our hospitality to you guys the same way that you have done for us in the past. The likeness and similarities between our groups is amazing. A fellow couldn't ask for a better group of people to associate his family with.  Thank You again from the Long family.  See ya'll in February

I would like to thank Scott, Don, Bruce the larger,and the rest of the  10-wheeler group, for a wonderful afternoon of  live steam fellowship.  We rode and ran trains , we ate some of the best BBQ I have ever had, along with countless side dishes and wonderful desserts.  I caught up with old friends, some that I have not seen in years, and we laughed alot too.  I'm home safe, and thanks again so much for the memories.  We will do it again in Feb.  RayIII

WHOOOOOO-DOOGIE!!! Let me add my thanks to the entire Ten Wheeler group, and the Long family for a great mini meet. Linda and I thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie, hospitality and ........ oh man, that pulled-pork bar-b-que! The sight of Linda running a coal fired Pacific alone was worth the trip.

Cam, here getting his "coal-smoke fix". It should be noted how nice and smooth the track work is on the Frog Hollow and Southern.
