Some of the more recent pics are from our own Reader#108. Excellent work as usual by one of our own.

Hey, you deserve the kudos. I've had maybe two lucky shots, and you regularly do excellent photography. Just keep it up. Hopefully I'll be at the park ave craft show next weekend so I can see some of your work in person!

Nope, it's a secret. Gonna start running that sucker up and down the line and no one will know about it for weeks. Probably run under the cover of darkness, too, so that photos are going to be impossible.

At least, that's what I heard from my girlfriend's sister's best friend's cousin's roommate's uncle who read it on RAILROAD.NET.

Awesome shot Lee! Black smoke coming from the stack is a rarity now with "smokeless" coal. Any word on 3025's progress?

Thank you.
You should see 3025 pulling holiday trains after Thanksgiving.
