I asked the guys at USA what the next steamer would be and they said west coast model.
Then I asked GS-4 or cabforward they didn't say yes or no but they said I should start saving my money.
To me when they say I should saving my money that means theres a good chance

Nice pics Mike!

Just to add a couple of comments to your pics. The pic of Ozarks booth also shows Dave's wife Brenda Rhoton and their son sitting in between them. Sitting behind the dog transport in the modeling contest was my Prehistoric Eggliner.

Great to see you guys!

OK...so it's the "Prehistoric Eggliner"....not the REAL DEAL EGG MOBILE. I didn't know what you named it...but it was a real egg...right?????

...and no, I didn't know that was Dave's wife and son...but I noted that they had a much larger booth than I recalled from prior years.

The vastness of the exibit hall allows for larger booths. I notieced some of the vendors who were absent last year were back.
and there still is plenty of room for more.

My favorite guy TOOL MAN was back. I picked up some picks and a magnafing glass from him.

I sure hope it was a good show for everyone

Sorry for the delay in responding Mike! Things are back to normal for me, busy as [email protected] and little free time! Yep, it's the Prehistoric Eggliner. I had planned on doing a whole story on finding it during expansion of the railroad complete with partially unearthed pics of it and all. That all fell apart as reality set in and I realized I had A) little to no free time to do the story and B) no camera to take the pics with! Our camera died a while back and we had just laid out the money for a new video camera. Just haven't found the need to spend the money on a new one yet.

Too bad someone who was on the tours doesn't post some photos for the rest of us to see. Mine was open and I didn't get a chance to see the others. IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE THAT CAN DO THAT?
