Pioneer Valley Live Steamers
Father Day Weekend 2009
The weather forecast for 20 June 2009 was pretty grim but I headed out at 8:00AM anyway hoping to get in some quality train watching before the skies opened. Luck held and the rain did not appear while I was at the train yard.
My wife was scheduled to go on a tour of Norwich CT gardens so she stayed home and kept the digital camera to use. These photos were taken with the video camera so they may look a bit different than my usual work.

A while back there was an extensive discussion on the Chaski.org Live Steam
http://www.chaski.org/homemachinist/ board concerning ways to anchor and support high lines. The right hand photo are a number of support posts and bases and the right photo is one of the supports in place on the high line.
This headlamp is mounted in the workshop. Sort of like a moose head on the wall.

There seemed to be more campers on the field than last time I made it up here for Father Day.
