Just missed the "big one". Thursday at Bob's house, Friday at John's house, Saturday and Sunday at the Huckleberry Railroad. We have about 29 members. I could only go to the Huckleberry on Saturday. 2 portable tracks with 2 tracks each, were full from 10AM to 5PM. After the park closed, we rode behind D&GRW #464. The web site is www.mssls.info. there probably be photos forthcoming.

Dave:

Googled "Ohio Live Steamers", 4 results below. From the website: Live Steam : Clubs - United States. These are all Grand Scale (...7.5", 15", etc.), but it's a start. Likely some members either also do small scale LS or know those who do.

We have completed the first phase of construction of our own railroad, The Frosty Hollow Branch Line, at Skip's house. We have in the initial loop of 450' of mainline, 1 steaming bay, and a turntable completed so far. This Spring we plan to double the tangent track length, add a siding, and add the station. We would be happy to have you and your engine come to visit. Drop us a line to make sure someone will be there.

Ohio - Northeastern Ohio Live Steamers

The Northeastern Ohio Live Steamers is actively recruiting new members.

Our club is 31 years old and consists of members from 10 years old to well, lets just say old enough. We vacated our mature site in Copley, Ohio in 1998. Now, working with the Medina County Park Board we are in the early stages of development of a nine-acre site in the Lester Rail Trail Park, northwest of Medina. Site grading and clearing is underway for a 2,200 ft 7-1/2 in. gauge mainline loop and a 1,200 sq. ft station style clubhouse / meeting building.
