   514, then pushed the train forward past the switch, uncoupled, pulled back into the clear, and waited for 3254 to couple. The geep was then coupled onto 3254's tender for the trip back.

   514 then had to pull the whole train into the siding to let a D-L freight pass.

Hey NS fan,
 Very nice pics, that last one is really a nice one, with all the smoke in the roundhouse. Also the shot with the mechanics greasing the grease points on the rods and such is nice, that air grease gun is something I need lol.
