The Adirondack Live Steamers Fall Meet was this past wekend. I was there on a very rainy Saturday and got to meet long-time NJLS member Dick Cudd for the first time.

Here are some pictures and a patched-together video from Saturday.

Dick firing his Accucraft S-12 on only its third outing:







I got a good 45 minute run with my AC-12, and then a second one that went well over an hour because the 1-1/2" crowd kept coming by and asking questions....




Here's the video. Note the question: "What's that?" Answer: "It's a cab forward." I guess not quite so many SP fans here on the east coast!

And some pictures of the 1-1/2" with the Dick Cudd built NYC Hudson in the steaming bay (he no longer owns it):





And a K-4 for the Pennsy crowd:





And for those B&A commuters:





The rain kept the G1 attendance low, but there were a lot of the 1-1/2" scale onlookers!

Best regards,

Alan

Glad to see you out and about with some recreational time, enjoying the hobby.

AC-12: questions extend running time; running time evoke more questions such a dilemma.

See you this coming weekend.

Hi Alan,

Glad you were able to make it and run. I was there Friday to clean up an prepare the track and had planned to be there Saturday, but rain, a two hour drive and a cold conspired to keep me at home. Your cab forward looked great in the video. I understand that Dick Cudd allowed as how his S12 proved to be a whole lot easier to transport than his 1.5" Pacific which is currently down for a boiler repair.
