Big boots and Western winter Meet

Post by trivettj » Sun Jan 28, 2018 10:43 pm

Hi I was just wondering if anyone is going to the big boots and Western winter Meet starting next week? I am just curious to how many people will be attending. This will be my first time at this track so I would like to know what to expect as to how many Engines can run on the track at one time and is there enough steaming bays for the ones of us that have steam locomotives any information on this track would be greatly appreciated.

It is big.........and yes they can handle lots of steam. I think there are 16 long bays.

Thanks from last year's videos it looks really big I just wasn't sure how many steam Engines could run there but I guess 16 at a time can steam up .
