Okay Daz, I'm game.

Here's a couple shots...one with me an my "tea kettle" during the '07 Memorial Day Run...wearing the bushings out of the valve rods and another shot from the '06 New Year's Day Whistle Blast Run with my jointly owned Backyard Rails F-7. Sadly, one of my three partners passed away this January. Collectively, there's a fleet of 15 pieces of rolling stock mostly built by combining our joint efforts and abilities (hey-we needed enough rolling stock for three people and their trains). Sorry, no shots of the boxcab as it's been up on blocks for several years for truck work. cb

Thanks for the post. I did this awhile back with some nice responses. I hope to see some more.

Hopefully I did this right. If I did you'll see this one with Carl Baskin and I at White Creek with my Ten-Wheeler ready for the main line and another of just myself.

and here a photo, which shows me at the Train Mountain Triannial 2003.

I had with me this 3" scale version of the Rio Grande Southern Speeder, which I had build for the meeting. The Speeder is gas-electric, and that's the reason, why it is in 3" scale instead the correct 2.5", but no chance to fit everything in a 2.5" version.

The photo is on the Douglas division at the northern end just under Caboose Ridge and was taken by my friend Bo Dyja from Danmark.
