If you don’t see me on Monday morning, send out a search party. I will be at Guantánamo Bay for trying to bring coal to Diamondhead.

Hi Guys,

Will be in DH on Wednesday afternoon. Looking forward to seeing the "boys from the frozen north", our English friends, and Tom "Willi" Bowdler.

Especially waiting to see the NWP cab forward as I've "lurked" on the forum as it was built. I'll have my scratch/kit-bashed 2-8-0 (think Cuba) to run.

Safe trip to all.

My dad and I will be there,

We are bringing the Ruby wine train (passenger cars and wine cars, there small no biggie), The new Shay #2 and the K28

Bob,

I installed a remote to the whistle you installed on my dad's k28, he loves it, I have to tell him to stop or the train stops from lack of steam (not that bad but it sounds funny :p).

We are planning on rolling in wednesday night and staying to late saturday night. Cant get off work too much more

I want to be there the whole time, doh.

Bob, I will be a first-timer, so thanks for the info--"rum at the IGA across the street". Expect that they will have the Coke and lime to go with it. Expect to arrive Wed. afternoon, with Doug Pyatt and our Shays.

Howdy All:

As in past years I will be posting daily pictures of the event up to the Internet.  Hopefully you will start seeing them on Monday.  

This year I will be going a little different route so that I can spend more time out at the happenings and less time formatting and uploading images.  I will be posting them to a Google account.  So I can use Google's bandwidth and storage instead of my own.  Then after the event I will post them up to my personal web site (http://www.johnsgardenrailway.info) for archive purposes.  Though I am sure the ones I post to Google will be up there for many years.

To get to the new pictures you can follow this link:  http://picasaweb.google.com/diamondheadsteamup

Just to get the ball rolling and test it out, I have posted pictures from the last two years to this link.  Images are uploaded into Albums and I create a new Album each days pictures.  Then Google sorts those Albums into date order.  When you click on a album you get thumbnail versions of all the pictures that you can enlarge or there is a slide show button at the top to go through them one by one.  Hope this makes it easier for the viewers, I know it will make it easier for me.

Take care and I hope to see many of you there.:)

To all the first timers... Bob and I went last yr for the first time and it was totally awesome, wouldn't miss DH now for anything. Have been packing for two weeks. We will be in Tuesday night with a couple of Regners made into 7/8's locos. Hope some of the rest of y'all bring 7/8's. Can't wait either, driving in from the GA coast. See you again at DH.
Gale, Bob's other half.

Dwight,

Sorry to hear that you will not have #21 at DH. Even before 9/11 I was getting too many questions as I would try to check my foam lined instrument case that had my loco in it. Decided that UPS is the only way I was going to ship locomotives to out of state steamups. The brown van hasen't let me down yet. I wrap the locos in tissue paper, then old bath towels, then bubble wrap. I use a new box and put a layer of shipping peanuts in, then the wrapped loco, and fill the balance with peanuts. If the loco can't move, it can't be damaged.

Looking forward to meeting you, with or without locomotive. There are too few people doing the kind of work you do.

any chance someone might have a water gauge there from an Aristo Mikado? Or something with the same threads, possibly British according to Royce? Its 6.8mm X 1. Measures .268 " with no American thread pitch gauge fitting it.

Its either that or a D&T to American threads.
