I guess I should try Photobucket to learn how that allows bypassing the 128KB limit for posting on the Forum. When I saved your nice, clear image above, from the newsletter cover, it shows as 231 KB. I have other Edaville and #5 Pleasure Island images, but at a fuzzy 128KB max., they're not worth doing. Bill Robie

So Brendan, how do you get an image larger than 128KB on the forum?? Bill Robie

Here's a photo of my favorite girlfriend all steamed up when I was 20 back in 1964. Bill Robie

I looked at the photo on the front page of the most recent WW&F newsletter (Jan/Feb 2015) and thought I was back at Edaville. What a nice photo, and a nice train! A great accomplishment to see 5 cars behind #10. Bill Robie

I'm Bill Robie, new member to the Forum. I live in Golden Colorado and have been a member of the Colorado RR Museum since the early '60s and a Trustee of the Museum for about 15 years. I grew up in Reading, MA, and was fireman for Edaville on #5 at Pleasure Island for the summers of 1962, '63, and '64. I am very impressed with all the volunteer hard work and effort to restore the railroad and equipment at WW&F. It's an amazing accomplishment! Of course, I am even more delighted with the restoration and continuing TLC being given to #10. She looks far better now than when I took care of her 50 years ago for three successive summers. #9 is an incredible story. Those years when I worked for Edaville, #9 was just a rumor that an old Maine 2-footer was in someone's barn down in Connecticut. #5 and #9 have come a long way and it's a remarkable success story for both. Keep up the great work, and I wish I lived closer.
