Congrats Doug, I know how excited you were when you got the call that they were going to bring you up into the cab.. Go on ya.. I'll have to make another trek down to see you at the throttle sometime later in the year.
The Roundhouse crews light them off 1st thing in the morning, and then shut off the fires and cover the stack to hold the heat untill we come in to hostle them.
they will be hot for a full day without a fire if the firebox doors are closed and the stack covered..
the no camera thing is a good thing, otherwise there would be no magic
I'm bringing my camera! We'll look for you either Monday Afternoon, Tuesday, Wednesday, or even Thursday. Who should we ask to see if "Doug Archer" is there? Also, do you have any idea if the Lilly Belle will be running any of those days?
