Re: Maine Narrow Gauge Museum Discussion

That is a reflection of a blue tarp. #7 is that shiny.

Re: Maine Narrow Gauge Museum Discussion

Big news! Bridgton & Saco River #7 has returned to Portland and ran last weekend during their Annual Meeting. It has been 15 years since #7 was in steam. She looks awesome. A lot of effort over the past 10 years by a number of dedicated volunteers got #7 completed. To celebrate the return of #7, the...

Re: Conway Scenic Railroad Discussion (CSRX) - 2011

Myself and a bunch of fellow railfans followed the 7470 as it made its way to Hazens making the day almost perfect. We had made it to Fayban's about a 1/2 hour ahead of the train. As other's have noted in previous posts, the accident happened long before the train showed up in that general location ...

Re: B&M Shelter at Raymond, NH?

I saw this same shelter at Raymond about 10 years ago. Looked great back then as well. As I recall, the station sign on it was for Candia.

Re: White Mountain Central Needs New Wolfman

During one railfan weekend Bill was doing his Wolfman thing. Yelling and carrying on as the train was going by. During this, we were on a dirt mound taking our pictures like any good railfan. As soon as the train disappeared, Bill "Wolfman" turned to us and in a very civilized tone and said "Boy, th...

Re: Official Conway Scenic Railroad Thread (CSRR) -2009

(We paid our $25 fee to be an "Offical Chase Vehicle"). It was my understanding that if you wanted to take pics at the night shoot you had to "pay" for tickets to do so. I have taken lots of photos around N Conway yard and the whole line in the past several years. I was excited about this event and...

Re: Official Conway Scenic Railroad Thread (CSRR) -2009

I recall that Robert Morrell from Story Land was in the bidding. He had just taken delivery of the Flying Yankee around that time, so if you put two and two together :wink: I think that one reaason he did not get the nod was a lack of facilities to operate out of. Does anyone know anything different?

Re: Official Conway Scenic Railroad Thread (CSRR) -2009

Here are some videos from this past Saturday's special steam excursion. I want to give a big hats off to Paul Hallett and the rest of the Conway Scenic crew. This had to be one of the best railfan trips I have chased in a long time. Also kudos to the Mass. Bay RRE for sponsoring the trip (We paid ou...

Re: Danvers Station Restoration

The land where they were going to originally locate the depot to is no longer available. The bank that owns the site originally was going to give the spot to the Danvers Depot group, but once they heard that the land it was to sit on was enviromentally unsound (see Steam's response about the land ab...

Building 5 0-4-0 ¾” Scale Live Steam Locomotives

Building a live steamer can be a daunting task, but building 5 of them can be a real challenge. Four of us from the Northeast Live Steamers are doing just that. It is my first time machining anything and since we started in January of this year, I have learned a tremendous amount. The member of the ...

Re: Official Conway Scenic Railroad Thread (CSRR)

The 7470 is running. I was in N. Conway from the 21st to the 27th. The tender is finish with the exception of the "Conway Scenic" patch. 7470 ran every trip to Conway with the exception of the last train on Thursday the 25th after only 2 people purchased tickets for that trip. They wanted to perfor...
