Saturday Morning OVGRS American Invasion 2011

Another hot sunny day brings us to the Narrow gauge sessions of the Invasion. A new set of train orders and narrow gauge rolling stock will now be pulled by steam.

 Yes you can operate a yard with live steam

 The locomotive shed is at the ready

 A train descending from Bell along the rear fence of the property.  There is a lift out at the gate into the back property.  Often you see a chocolate lab at the fence looking on.  He must be quite the railfan by now.

 Another meet at Spruce.

 Happy John

 Roger has a busy Dipple yard today.  We are thinking of you Ralph.  Our prayers are with you and your family.

 Bill is getting ready to depart Dipple.

 Action in Mount St Helens

 A close look at the live steamer that switched in Craig Leigh.  Ric' locomotive worked so nicely and his skilled control during the yard classification was amazing.

Now for a drink and lunch
