I want to hurry up my own local club track project... all this approval stuff is taking too long lol. At least, I will be visit my dad's this weekend to boil some water, lol

In honor of Wednesdays with Weltyk Little Caesar's Pizza temporarily lowered their price for their Hot to Go large pepperoni pizza from $5.00 to $3.99, Wednesdays only. Guess what we had for lunch.

Click here for some pictures. Videos will follow, when I get the time.
Once again, thanks for sharing. Looked like a great day for steaming. The last picture was a surprise to me. Nice addition to Bobs layout and canopy. See you soon at Durand.:)

Thanks for posting Tom. Those are some great videos. Looks like you all are having a great time. :)
If this is going to happen every week Im going to get seriuosly P------- off!

ah well I did get to steam arepair job this morning, a lovely little Furness Railway 0-6-2 tanker unusual in that its meths fired and the power comes from a 2 cylinder osccillator engine mounted in the rear bunker and geared to the rear driver! runs like aSwiss watch. mechanically silent no rattles or knocks just aquiet chuff from the stack.

Rumor has it that you are planning to come to the next Diamondhead. If this is true, I may have to go there just to meet you in person.

The link above for Steamtom1's videos takes you to a .wmv file. For a file that an Apple Mac can view, go to:


--A remarkable video

You like that old Schools. It sure makes a fine looking train.

Have you run yours recently? Remember the last time we doubleheaded them...

p.s. I will try to post all the videos on YouTube as well as on MLS. for all you Mac fans.

p.p.s. You should try to make it over for our 4 (or counting Wednesday is it 5?) day SteamUp end of July, beginning of August. See MSSLS Future Events.

Bob, What time of day due you start? I would like to come up.

Don,We are starting about or a little before noon......Next weekend We will be out Steaming at Durant.10 AM to 4 PM each Day....Maps are on our web Site at: www. mssls.info

Yes, the sight of the doubleheaded School engines pulling your rake of matching cars was unforgettable. Thanks for the posting, I want to save that image. ( By the way, Tom is an adept Aster driver, running that train without R/C )
