Can you imagine today that one Class I sponsors a steam excursion and another Class I puts a couple of its locomotives on display at the destination for fans riding the excursion? Well, Canadian National did that at Portland, ME, in 1956, for riders of the last steam passenger train into Portland on the B&M.

Here's CN Mountain type 6017:

Next week, some photos when RDG 1187 as SRR 4 and CN 7312 as SRR 31 were Strasburg's only motive power.

Had to run down to New England Southern to do some work in the yard. Loaded up 19 relay ties to get out of the yard and then cleared brush on 2 of the sidings in Concord Yard. Then we blocked out some cars that will need to be delivered next week. Pending if there is any more snow by the end of the month, I'll have to clean switches again!

Hot off the presses...  That's my car with the festive wreath, and my office is behind the trees to the right of the train...


Good thing they always seem to pull out of town at lunch time!

Happy Thursday!

Well, you can see who they can count on to take the lead...
I hope there's a future release of a late phase GP40 that looks like that on someone's agenda...
