A great time running and eating at John's on Saturday.
I concentrated on the eating portion of the activities!
Here are a few pictures taken on Saturday.

Nice. I like the simple angle-steel rails.
Good idea.

I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure that is “the” Wee Angus.
A recent hospital visit prevented me taking a locomotive....this time. I will be back however.

It was a great turnout for the end of the season meet! I think John has the official count but I believe there were 12 of us in total. Just goes to show that there is plenty of interest in the "old school" 3 1/2" gauge high line tracks!

Here is a close up of Jay's beautiful Angus:
