The club is located in Marengo, New York, halfway between Rochester and Syracuse on 12 scenic acres near the rural communities of Clyde and Lyons.
We have three different railroads: 7-1/4", 4-3/4" and Gauge One. All of the tracks have been expanded and improved in recent years.
Visiting steam locomotives must have a current club or state boiler certificate.

I'm planning a couple of special treats for the 50th at FLLS. We are trying to get our 1930's George the fifth running by then. It's a Bassett Lowke 4-4-0 English engine that was the first engine to introduce superheating in the early part of the century.

Thanks to Live Steam Magazine for the photo
I would also like to host a reunion of all 7.25 0-4-0 camelbacks at the 50th meet.

Update, we won't have the George V ready until next summer. We dropped the chassis off with Marty this week so he could make sure the new boiler will fit.
