A GREAT DAY AT THE PLS

Post by Trainman4602 » Sat Jul 14, 2018 10:23 pm

Hi All
I had a great day today at the Pennsylvania Live Steamers annual club Picnic. My Daughter Katie came down from Brooklyn. It was great to see her. She hasn't ridding the trains since she was a young girl. We had a great time . Something I'll always remember.

The 1361 ran flawlessly all day . At one point with a fully loaded train and at full throttle she lifted both safety valves while both injectors were on WOW! what a locomotive.

Yea that is me with the Buddha Gut. The result of eating 25 tomato pies during my experimentation.

Dave - Sorry I cannot navigate around at Rahns anymore. I would like to have seen 1561 in its new paint job.
No more tomato pies for six months!

Dave,

Great to see your daughter enjoying a nice day steaming and running the 1361 with you. 25 tomato pies? Never heard of those before. Something unique to Jersey, lol? Working on my gut as well, lol.

Hi Rob
Tomato Pie is indigenous to Trenton. The place where I always went to get one moved out of town and into the suburbs. Of course the price went thru the roof. I have made the duplicate pie in my home oven. If you want to see how it is made go to my You Tube channel.
I would post a picture but it is not in keeping with the format here.

There is a guy up here in CT who is advertising Tomato Pies and you prompted me to 'go look them up'.

the concept appears to be all over the place from something that looks like pizza to something that looks like apple pie with the obvious substitution of internal ingredients.

I can understand eating 'too many'.
