Bob Dean having fun on his Consolidation. It was overcast and my old camera was operating slow, hence the blurry photo.

My lovely wife Linda running her critter with one of my grandsons and Ron's wife Karen. Linda told me she was going to run her engine, "But dear" I said,"this is a steam only event!"  
"I am running my critter" she said.......... being that discretion is the better part of valor, I let her run her engine.

Last image. And the end of phase 2.
Already conversations have started about a new WYE, more steaming bays and possibly a stub yard. But I think we have reached the end of mainline expansion. We measured the mainline and came up with 4075 feet. Add in the sidings and yard and it is over a mile.  
 
Thank you all for following along.
 
Bobby
