Lovely photos, Stewart. Thanks for posting. We've only had a few inches of snow in Lancaster, Pa. so far this season. Crocuses and daffodils and snow drops are coming up, and the snow geese are about two weeks ahead of their usual schedule. Maybe an early spring this year.....

You are just saying that to make us here in Lincoln County, Maine feel bad!

I remember two years ago about now, when we have four feet of snow on the ground here just southwest of Boston, so I feel the pain.

Only 31 days 'til spring!
Ack.

I truly don't understand why all of you are so anxious to look forward to spring.

Winter is Wonderful!  Especially on the WW&F!!!! 

Just look at the amazing experiences from Victorian Christmas to the two photographers weekends (where else anywhere will you get those kinds of pics for our railroad) and the just completed MassBay charter.  Those photos of winter cold and steam are priceless to us as a museum.

Enjoy winter while it's there and then enjoy the spring when it comes around again (just don't make it happen too quickly).

I enjoy winter also.  The sky seems a deeper blue, and the brightness of snowcover can be uplifting.  Grateful for all our seasons...

See ya

The Sunday post is a look back at last month's MTF event.  Winter is a great time to photograph steam action at the WW&F.

The Sunday post is a study of a day in the life of a narrow gauge brakeman starring Bryce Weeks.
