    A day long chase of the EWG

    It's an all day affair chasing the Eastern Washington Gateway from one end of the line to the other, over 100 miles of mostly 10 mph track and beautiful country. I spent the day with Steve Eshom, Robert Scott, Dan Bolyard and Richard Zoller. The show is about 37 minutes, all good!:D 7d-WySZj27A

    A rainy Friday at Simpson

    The guys had a rough morning which started with the newly rebuilt 1201 developing a debilitating electrical short right out of the barn at the diamond. It took a while to get it moved out of the way and back to the roundhouse. The 900's out of service, waiting on a governor so they took the...

    Tracks in the Snow Video 2011

    ihCY2QzZCts I guess with the advent of Facebook there hasn't been a thread on this year's event posted here as yet. This year's TITS was anticipated to be held during a "monster" snowstorm, causing much excitement. But as the time grew closer it turned out to be a warm-up and rain deluge for...

    Cascade Meadows Weekend Movie

    John Binetti (Squawkbox), Me and Paul (?) planned on another Gaynor weekend but once we arrived there on Friday found a hardcore group of beer swilling gun-nuts. Needles to say we weren't made to feel welcome so we scooted down to White Pines Road and camped at a pleasant spot by the creek...

    Tac - Chehalis behind MRSR 5 in 1987

    I scanned some aging slides from 23 years ago of an excursion put on by the Mt Rainier folks. The porter was the featured player and did a great job pulling an open air and regular coach up Tacoma Hill. The route followed the CW line to Chehalis and returned the next day. Anyway here's the views

    Memorial Day WE at Gaynor

    I thought I'd share some views of this weekend's experience at Gaynor. Nine foamers showed up to stay a night or two or three including The Binetti Brothers, Will and Jen H, Paul, Josh, Ross and his son Jameson and me. The temperature didn't really get out of the 40s until Sunday and Friday...

    Some from Shelton today

    I went out looking for the afternoon Simpson train, picked a pretty spot next to the creek at the milepost two bridge over Goldsborough Creek, and waited a few minutes. The radio crackled on 161.34, not the road channel but the MOW channel.
