Howdy All:

Been a very busy year for me with work and family. However, it's time for the annual Diamondhead Steamup and a vacation!!


I don't have the live camera this year. Figured I needed to spend more time relaxing. I will be posting images, probably daily, to the Diamondheadsteamup Google Images site. Hope you enjoy them.

From 2009-01-11-Sunday

John

Thanks for posting the numerous pictures. It is greatly apprciated by those of us who couldn't get there. I could hear the pooting of the engines in my head as I looked at your pictures.

Aw come on....those were great pictures! I never cease to be amazed at the diversity of all of the engines that can run on 45mm track! One question.....what was with the Sousaphone?

Well, it was a sad week for me - I had to stay home this year because of taking a new job. But it was great to see old faces and new locos. Thanks very much for posting them, John!

Steve,
The Sousaphone player is Gary White one of two (John Bigelow is the other) LOW brass players in the "Clack Valves and Cornets" steam band a yearly attraction at the Diamondhead steamup directed by Joe Hall.
I had a great time, missed Vance (though I saw his smiling face in Marc's Britain trip presentation) and was amazed as well at the variety of locomotives. My Sewage Works train (my first foray into 7/8 scale) was well received.
Have fun,
Tom

Andrew,

I have a copy of his card somewhere. Give me a few days to unpack, unwind and return to earth. If I forget, send me a pm reminder please.
