Here are some of my pics from the Northeastern Ohio Live Steamers track (which I am a member of), and a couple pics of the meet this past weekend at the PA&W Railroad.
 
This is a fellow member of NEOLS's and his engine.  George built this Little Engines 4 3/4 inch gauge atlantic over a 10 year period and he completed it in 1982.  As Bruce would say he is a Live Steam Gentleman.  He allows me to operate the engine and the past three times he has had it out to the track I have run it more then he has.  I feel very lucky to have a friend and mentor like George.

John and his 4 3/4 gauge Pacific.  This was the first steam locomotive I got to run that was not mine.  His 7 1/2 inch gauge 0-4-0 is also the first 7 1/2 inch gauge engine I got to run.  That happend this past Sunday at the PA&W railroad.  I did not get a pic of the 0-4-0 though.

These next pics are from last Sunday at the PA&W Railroad.  I got to meet Bruce Teerlink and it was great to meet him.  He has also convinced me to come down to Flordia for the Unmeet in February.  This is Bruce and Jeff Dute steaming up Jeff's shay.

The best part of the meet was Brian asking me if I wanted to run his Pacific.  It was a GREAT shock when he asked me.  He said he saw me running his dad's 0-4-0 and wanted to know if I would want to run the Pacific.  It was by far the best and most memorable live steam experience I have ever had.  It was a awesome experience running the big Pacific on a railroad with steep grades and a 6 car train behind it.  I can not thank Brian enough for trusting me to run his engine.

Today at NEOLS my friend George brought his 7.5 inch gauge Heisler out.  I had the great opportunity to run it for a while today.  It is a very fun engine to run.  It is also the first time I was using an injector to put water into the boiler.  It really did enjoy running the engine, and learning how to use an injector.  I really can't thank George enough for allowing me to operate his Atlantic and his Heisler.  Here are some pictures of the Heisler.

Before I brought the engine into the steaming bays, I stopped to take this pic.
