Van Brocklin Meet
Waushakum Live Steamers
28 June 2009
The weather pattern we have been experiencing in New England for weeks now held this weekend and Sunday, 28 June 2009 dawned gray and threatening. But the weather gods held off their deluge long enough for the Waushakum Live Steamers to host a great day of running and riding.
NEMES member Dick Koolish beat me to the punch and posted these photos ahead of me. http://www.dickkoolish.com/rmk_page/pictures_062809.html
Dick Koolish has reported a problem with his MAC not recognizing the MPG files. He reports that a utility called VLC Media Player (a free download) provided a work around. http://files.uberdownloads.com/software/video-player/VLC.html Dick says that the You Tube link worked fine on his computer. Thanks for your input Dick!

Suggestion for viewing MPG clips: Right click on the icon, save target as, (I usually save to the Desktop), and save. When the file finishes downloading double click on the desktop icon and play the video clip. Delete as desired.
Joe Ng, Waushakum and NEMES member is certainly one of the nicest guys you could hope to meet.
This year adjacent to the equipment storage shed (L) is being built opposite the steaming bays.
(L) A new section of track has been laid but not ballasted. Note the ground cloth laid under the track to prevent weeds from growing up through the ballast. (R) is a wye ready for installation.

Roy Bear and Eddie Moose caught the attention of this little charmer. I thought that maybe they were going to be carried off!
