Hi All

If Allen has your email address you should have received the meet packet by now. USPS will take a couple of days. Please let me know if you do not receive a packet.

I would recommend that you get the camping reservation in ASAP.

I notice that there is a gap between the Largo and Manatee dates, and another between Manatee and Ridge. Are there any activities planned between these dates?

Hi

The ridge track is open the entire month of February. They use the days to reposition equipment.

February 18-19th will be Tradewinds & Atlantic Railroads public run. Anyone can come out and run their train, you don't have to carry passengers if you don't want to. Just come out and have fun. We aren't the biggest of tracks but we are the southern most track in the United States and we have had fun for 27 years now. Email me at mike@livesteamers.org for more info if you want to join us.

Due to running out of steaming bays last year the Ridge Live Steamers installed 5 more steaming bays.

Believe it or not the camp ground is already filling up as well. If you have not sent your camp ground reservations in you need to get them coming.

I hope to see you at one of the Florida tracks in February.

The Florida meets start in less than 1 month. All of the tracks have been working to get their tracks in first class shape for your enjoyment.

The Ridge Live Steamers camp ground is getting full please make your reservations as soon as possible.

Hope to see you here.

For those attending the Winter meets and planning to visit Pasco, CP&G is happy to announce the opening of the Wine & Cheese division, this new section of track will really add some fun and interest to the already fun to run CP&G Track
This will give you the ability to choose 1 of 3 different routes out of the Sanford Yard
you can run as normal upto Trilby
or you can switch onto wine and cheese just east of St Leo and drop onto the Sanford Conector and go out to Pasco loop or back to the yard
or you can stay on Wine and Cheese and go all the way up to Sheridan Loop and run that division and come back around and either than choose to go to PASCO loop or Hackets Jct or out through Lenard and over to Trilby or Dade city

lots of By directional running with our automated signal system and plenty of action with trains traveling in multiple directions and passing

come out and experience the new improved CP&G and join the fun
we have only a couple Camp ground spaces left with water and electric
contact Bill at billdonati19@yahoo.com to reserve Don't Forget Disney Day Saturday March 4th
