Brilliant, John, simply brilliant.   Over the 19 years I've had the privilege to volunteer, the scenes I saw over the two Sundays of the Grand Reunion have been among the most striking.  Serving on the train crews, I couldn't take photos or videos, but I witnessed some of the most amazing scenes I've been fortunate to experience on the railway over this winter.  Thanks for sharing your work, John.  Greatly appreciated.

The next time should hopefully feature crossing Trout Brook and climbing the grade to TOM.  Now that will be a sight with stack talk to boot.

Folks,
          I just watched some more video of the event. Once again I was struck by the number of people who were out in the night of a Maine winter to make it happen. It was great to see the WW&F #9 in her earlier guise as SR &RL #6.  I am sure Alice Ramsdall would have been pleased! Ted Miles, WW&F Member
