Will Davis and I (redbeard AKA Larry Newman) had the great pleasure of going to Norm and Ruth Saley's this weekend for a steam-up. I am probably the worst person to write this up since I am so bad about remembering peoples names. I believe there were about 25 people there at one time or other. The weather had been lousy for days and it looked like it might rain, but the sky cleared off Saturday morning and the temperature was cool enough for decent steam plumes. The wind was pretty strong all day, but luckily the Saley's yard has fences all around and that kept the wind from bothering the trains. (other than a branch from a tree coming down now and then) The Lake Margaret and Conway Railroad is very thoughtfully laid out in a space that I would have judged too small for a track this large. Great job Norm! I tried to get pictures of every engine that ran, but I may have missed a few since I ran my Mason many times (and I ate too many times). Ruth and several of the steamers provided a feast for hungry railroaders! I am putting up this group of pictures, but I failed to record names of the owners. I know only a few for certain, and a few I am pretty sure of. So to be sure I don't get a wrong name or engine I am posting the pictures without captions. I have lettered each picture and if any of the steamers want to reply I welcome them. I shrank the pictures to save loading time, and I only put up a few. Any of the guys who want copies of pictures can e-mail me and I will send them. 
First a nice group of "Rubies"

Wonderful to see Norm's layout and the gathering of steam power for all of us to enjoy.  Norm is a master of the hobby, enjoyable to be with and most likely a great host.
Appreciate your post.
