We had a rare middle of March snow along with a visitor for the weekend who flew in to see us.  He may have been in the Chicago area for work,  can't remember now.  [I offer pick up and return for those that want to come in and help from Midway or the train station.]

Our visiter from Texas helping to clear track at Clear Lake for service.  We decided the plow was faster.

Frolin taking #25 for a spin on the table to put into stall #3 to end the day.  He`had a blast and came back one more time for a weekend trip.  Free air miles are nice!  After his visit, he went back to San Antonio (hope that is correct) and designed a battery electric he could ride in.  Check his web site for pics.  www.frolin.net

We have some nice young boys in the area and we like to include them when they come over.  Here is two of them riding along and trying to keep warm.  No SNOW in January.

Nice steamers I wish I had one. I'm with the HO scale they can also make smoke but you can't ride on one.

Thanks BM_133  I wanted one also so have hired outside help to build me one as I am no machinist.  I dabble in Sn3 when I can't be in Michigan.  In the meantime, I can have fun running these.
 
More wood going to the wood shed on a mixed train.  Waiting for the helper to attach.

Parked on the spur at High Point so helper can get by.  This shot is no longer available as Jack changed the spur due to tight radius and derailments of Forney's.  #10 didn't like it.  #7 would stall out due to flange bind.  Notice the pilot offset.

Our friend George F. has a turn at running #4.  Big Bruce stands at the switch.  #7 is behind on spur with Alina.

Thanks for the nice comment.  The plow isn't on the gon yet.  We are building sander boxes for #25 to help with slippery track.  I will post pictures as we progress.  We had snow already but it melted.  Had to use the sanders on #7 to make it up hill.  Was fun!

Our good friend and neighbor to Jack has a son who has been a real big help with track work.  I have been giving him lessons on running #7 and he has showen he can handle the task.  This is Conner peaking out the cab.  He is 3 3/4 scale right now but is growing fast.
