Thank you Jeff

Will the rebuildIng of 4268 happen at north Conway? Or is this too big of a job for them to do and theyll ship both units out? I recall people saying that it was too big of a job when the CS wanted to swap the prime mover from 1943 to 2820. So I'm assuming they'll just ship the units out

I was talking with Paul yesterday and he said it will happen. He's very excited to have a new set of working F sisters in the future.

Steam in the Snow was a great success, as NRGeep mentioned. We departed No Conway on time under a cloudy sky, but with
relatively mild temperatures, and little wind. Although we never saw much in the way do sunshine, we did have favorable
conditions otherwise, including a light thin layer of snow, enough for the winter look, at least. There were 5 photo runbys,
some of them done in 2 parts in order to split the size of the crowd. MBRRE likes this procedure as it allows more people to
get prime spots on the photo line. After the train arrived in No Conway 1555, passeengers disembarked and the train backed
out of the station for a second arrival photo op, a "photo finish."

It appeared that everyone had a good time. Hope to see some good shots start popping up out there soon.

I like that photo, #7470. It looks very natural and un-staged.
