Today was warm and sunny with temps in the low 70s this afternoon. It also happens to be my birthday, so I did what any self-respecting Steamaholic would do... I took the day off, went over to Mark's, and boiled some water!


I got in several runs of SPC #3 and had a wonde
ful time!







And a video clip...

Later this afternoon, Mike Reilley, who's up here to visit his kids, stopped by for a couple of Chipshits and to shoot the breeze.

All in all, a very satisfying day!

Happy Birthday Dwight and glad the track was still up for the B-day run! She looks beautiful - sorry I didn't get back sooner - would have loved to watch you run.

Happy Birthday,
You old Geezer!
Nice that you had a good looking day for your celebration of steam. We have a beautiful snow cover and are forecast to have single digits for the next few days but in 15 minutes I'm leaving for the first leg of my trip to the sunny south.
Diamondhead here I come,

Happy birthday, Dwight. The 4-4-0's really are fun to run, aren't they? Who belongs to the NCNG version in the background? We are having the same snow-bright chill here in VT as Tom mentioned, and my 4-4-0 and its train are packed and ready to go to Cabin Fever on Friday morning.

Happy Birthday Dwight. I have one of those little 4-4-0's and they sure are fun to operate. I am taking mine to Diamondhead this time. I quit celebrating birthdays a long time ago.

Ahh, it's only 5 degrees here... It ain't that bad. Of course, the northern natives escape to Mississippi, but the non-natives STAY! :D


Still waiting on an opportunity to whip out the Ruby and plow some snow with it. Need a plow first.... Hum...

Dwight,
Late happy B-day to you. Great video! Can't think of a more pleasant way to spend a B-day. I spent mine at Chris's running my 4-4-0 :)
