Doug:
Glad to know you have continued your Hudson locomotive project. I wondered where Jack B's gorgeous work would end up.

You have a steam neighbor on Lopez Island:
Keith Sternberg.
He's fairly famous in the steam boat world, and one of the last commercial ship's compass adjusters!
People ship marine steam engines to him (on Lopez Island!) for restorations, and he uses a local bronze foundry to make whatever needed.
And he has a fine Allen Ten Wheeler coal burner at his home, not to mention his small (26') steam ship he is restoring.

So it seems there is a growing concentration of San Juan Islands steam projects.

If you view the photo in Australia, is it really upside down?

keeps from having to worry about couplers 'locking up' unintentionally (or at all) when an unauthorized 'someone' wants to 'catch a ride'.. :shock:

It's really nice...wish I could do work 1% that nice
Too many things going on to bother listing them.
