Some days, the most interesting person you meet is a river with a train running beside it.

Nice Shots Charlie!
 
Musta been a birthday party weekend....
 
Those cabs keep that place "in the black." Even on the slowest of days, those parties at the least cover the fuel costs and then some, operations wise.

Thanks Anthony_SRR!
Charlie_O great shots glad you enjoyed the trip. I am second from the right in the "Conductors" shot. Thanks for showing me I need a diet!
We Had six caboose charters on Saturday, and only two on Sunday, we left all three on just in case. Never turn down those extra fares.
 
Some shots from me that day. The first 98 from the baggage compartment.

114 going to get 98 from next to the back shop to put her away for the night.
 
Steam will be running for the next four weekends then a week break. Then it will be  running again unitl Dec. 17.
 
58 has been fixed after the breakdown on "Pufferbelly" weekend and just needs to be tested.

As Wayne Campbell would put it... "Excellent!"
 
Good to see 98 and 114 out n' about. KENTANDQUEENANNERR, would you by any chance happen to know Jeff Hammaker (W&W engineer and horn "nut")?

After an enjoyable weekend at the Strasburg Railroad, myself and my friend Dave went up to the W&W to see #98. I will post pictures later this week, here and on the Strasburg page.
