Thank you, Graham. On my outdated operating system (El Capitan) I couldn't see any pictures but it was great just to read about the progress.

Can anybody tell us what progress on the 4-6-2 #470 restoration has been made?

and the last steam locomotive built in the state of Maine since Portland Co. built B&SR #5 in 1906!

Steve, I think you meant the FIRST one since B&SR #5 in 1906. Just me nitpickin'....everybody knows whatcha meant.  :D

Dana, I have a word for auto correct that is not as nice as darned. No doubt about it, auto correct was invented by an embittered typing teacher who was laid off because not enough kids were enrolling for the class, and it is clearly designed to torture hunt-and-peck typists who have to keep their eyes on the keyboard. >:(

National Nail and Screw Museum.....I love it! ;D Thanks, James.

Well my hat's off to you, Jon! Sure looks like they're for hanging hats.

It looks as though the fourth and fifth rings in from the righthand edge of the picture might have had drinking cups in them--such as Dixie cups, with the axes of the cups horizontal, at the time the picture was taken, but I doubt that is what the rings were intended for.

Bill, can you tell us the RR and the town? From the pictures I'd guess that people were injured at the very least.

I thought I logged onto the WW&F Forum, but I guess I got Comedy Central instead. ;D Mike, thanks so much for the pictures! I hope nobody got frostbite.

Congratulations to all who painted! The utter lack of dribbles, splatters etc. amazes me. Wonderful end result!

Thank you very much, Graham. Sounds much better than Photobucket.
