In our house its a battle as to which we run steam (hers) and shay's and diesels (mine).  Keep up the goood work both of you.

 
The Island would be perfect for you to model then. Shays on the Logging Roads, Diesels on the E&N, and steam on CN.

Actually CN7059 we have been as we dug up some of the old surveys of the north island and created a line up there that interchanges with the E&N at Courtenay.  I am working on Hillcrest #11 or as close to it as I can get right now anyway.  She is from back east but loves the island but she likes those odd steam engines with the resiprocating rods on the drivers (it will never catch on like a shay or a climax, steam as it was intended).  Having riden both Hillcrest #9 and #10 I am partial to them and their sisters.  I figure with the minerals up there and the forest products it would work ok.  We are modeling somewhere around the mid 80's.

How to amuse yourself and your child at the same time...........
 
Early morning finds Welcox and SRY V.I. busy.   The twins are busy pullling a load of procor tankers off the rail barge, while two sets of poles, a hopper from National Silicates, and a couple of empty tankers wait for the trip back to the mainland.    On this date Columbia Fuels has two cars spotted, and the RDC is on the shop tracks for servicing after a failure near Nanaimo that caused "confusion and delay".
 
If you look close Dennis Washington is making his way across the overpass for a "surprise" inspection of his new railyard.   Let's hope they are being "usefull".

The twins load the barge.   No coffee breaks today - the boss is in from Montana.
