Re: Very Interesting Steam Loco Story Trains Mag

It will soon become operational again, as it is being completely overhauled at the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad in Garibaldi, OR. I have been keeping track of the progress and sure hope I can get a ride up there for its first outings. I try to photograph it when I visit there but it's stuck back in ...

Re: Non Lifting Injectors

Interesting, Mark, and not many people today have the knowledge or machine skills that you have to create tools to do the job and then do it. Good job.

Re: 4449 April 2018, Close Up Pacing Shot

OK, thanks, that's what I was afraid of. Can't just include one from your own computer, it must be resident somewhere on the net such as at YouTube. Oh well, you'll have to take my word for the comparison. I don't do YouTube nor any social media.

Millhouse, how did you get that video on here? Can you drag one like a photo? If so I have one on my desktop to illustrate the old (VHS) vs new (Digital).

Re: 2926 Derailment On Eve of First Steam Up

This outfit is a class act. I sent them a contribution to assist in the rerailing of 2926. Today I received a hand written card and thank you from Mike Hartshorne, President of the NMSL&RHS. How many other organizations even recognize contributions? I sure wish I could be there when this beauty ...

Re: UP tracks

On the 844/4449 doubleheader from north of Portland to Everett, 844 ran on BNSF trackage, but there may have been rights for both BNSF and UP, as there were UP tracks available, too.

I am just now getting around to looking at the rest of the photos I shot. Here are a couple. The ex-McCloud 25 was also a participant in all of this fun.

Polson Logging No. 2 now on the Oregon Coast

This weekend I got an opportunity to participate in another photo special, after a year of inactivity. Thanks to my daughter Laurie who flew to Oregon from California to drive my to Garibaldi. The occasion was the debut of Polson Logging 2-8-2 No. 2, transplanted from the Mid Continent museum in Wis...

Re: 261 Trips to Duluth Cancelled Acount of Amtrak

I'm afraid that's just the beginning of bad news cancellations. Hopefully later this month I may get to participate in some steam fun on a tourist operation. We shall see.

Re: March 23, 2002

Hey John, and on that trip is when we met each other. I remember what you had to go through to get to Portland and then Doyle put you to work in the concessions group, something I had followed up on for several years until I was unable to do it any longer. This aging process is no fun. I know how mu...
