New Years Day Steam Up

1 January 2012

Another New Years day has arrived and we are all thankful for the opportunity to enjoy our hobby for another year. The day was mild (compared to some other years!) and there was a pretty good turnout a the meet. 

Here are the photos I took today with some short video coming along soon.  I was heartened to see a group of young fellows dealing with their loco.  They seemed to be troubleshooting the machine in a  orderly manner and I especially like that no adults butted in to help them.  Figuring things out for yourself is the best way to learn I firmly believe!
