Hey Wsherrick,
Yeah, Mark said you had run it too. At Mark's advice, I took the family down for the scenic ride. My son really likes trains. Mark was running it that day. I'm not sure if I saw you there.
Nice bunch of guys...

I thought you might want to see a few more pictures of engines I have worked on. My experience with steam goes back to the mid 70's. Even though I now work for NJT and run the most modern trains in the USA these days; I will go to my grave as a steam man. There is nothing like those wonderous machines and today there is so much mis information about them.

This was my favorite engine of the bunch. C&O No 2716 could single handedly pull a 100 cars of freight at 60 MPH

We should try to have a meet and greet on one of these trains.


I know I would be bringing the grandkids but it still might be a good time.
