Re: International Small Scales Meet - Montreal 2017

The website is still down after four or five months? Time for a new website! David And it is born tonight. A bureaucratic ordeal involving the new bank and the Provincial (State in the USA world) government prevented the Board of Directors from securing a domain name and hosting plan under the corp...

Re: Ralph Frances

Very good! Here are the next three photos. Obviously the next is Ernie Grow and then who appears to be an older Ralf Francis. Can we assume that is Ralf's wife in the third photo?

The link for the Montreal Live Steamers does not seem to work?

Bummer.
Yes, we are having to change ISP companies.

Re: MLS International Meet

Hey James, Your Dad is a treat to have visit. He had that wee traction engine in steam every day, all day and had uncounted engineers at the throttle. If the engine was idling it was because it was time for a meal and he regaled us with stories of man and machine which entertained us all. Here's a s...

Re: Another Superheater/Steam Dryer Question

Re: NJLS Spring Meet

One picture was so fuzzy it looked like a picture of a couple of buns. Maybe it was a pressed ham samich? Strange things happen when you forget your camera at a Tinkerbell Meet. I'll eventually post a link to a Facebook album (anyone can view, even if you don't have a FB account) . Unfortunately I ...
