On 19 July, Larry and Loretta Green hosted a steamup on Larry's Belden Falls Railway. Aside from a brief shower in the afternoon, the weather was very good and we all had a great time steaming. Below are some pictures from the steamup.

Mort's Shay looks a lot like a Heisler and that Pierce might actually be a Pearse. Nice pics, thanks for sharing.

John, you are right on both counts. But don't blame Llyn--I wrote the captions and the errors are my fault.
We lucked out on the weather that day. The plan was to steam on rails at my place Saturday, and then sail the nearby Otter Creek on steam launches Sunday.
However, Sunday was a washout, so most of the crew came back here to finish the leftover food and talk steam. All in all, a very pleasant two days.

Jay, that's Llyn's K-28 in the background on the steaming bench. He did have it out on the track during the day.
Also,that's Doug Pyatt's Catatonk Heisler on the stone train; Mort had a Shay. The LGB trolley belongs to Herschel; he has equipped it with on-board battery/RC so it can run on non-insulated steam tracks.

Did you ever make it to Vermont this summer?

Hey Jay, as Larry said, I did get in a good run with the K28 early in the session. Somehow, my ability to multi-task does not always extend to steaming and photographing at the same time. At any rate, we were all having fun. By the way, thanks for sending the o-rings. I'll keep an eye on the mailbox.
