Here’s some pictures from the first day of setting up the Live Steam Track at BTS.
We are located just east of the Convention Center’s south entrance (just off of Holt Blvd).
The area where the track will be setup is just a blank pallet waiting for the artist’s brush.
Bob Starr and Jackie arriving with the track and their trailer in tow.
And after about 3 hours of assembly, the track sections are having the individual rails joined by Stan, Mike and John.
A well deserved break. Bob, Jackie, Ms Daisy, Dwight, Tommy, and JJ.
And finally some official excitement brought to us by the Convention Center officials, which seems to always be lurking in the wings....”you can’t have an occupied trailer parked here” (a local city ordinance)
I ended up with three raffle prizes this year, a Bachmann tank car, a USA reefer, and a miniature plant! (Like shooting fish in a barrel, but I thought I would leave some for the rest of you.) They were personally delivered to my house yesterday. What a great show!
