Thank you Mike for the report and pics. Starting up a partnership  with Sealyon Farms has really been a brillant idea.

Dick Glueck took and shared these photos from Cattail Foundry in Lancaster County Pa.  They were very cordial and he had an excellent tour of the place. Photos were taken with permission and shared (with permission) via Bernie Perch.

While these photos are not of the Build 11 project specifically, Cattail is manufacturing many of the castings for the project, along with Coach 9.

Now that is a picture I would like to see on an Annual basis.  Think we need a bigger engine-house.

You could do that with the engine house. You'd just need to use the turntable lead and the garden track. There's even a spot open for 10 or 11 in that spot.

Yes, that's what I was thinking. Donald Ball argues that Mansfield most likely did not visit the Ffestiniog Railway as has often been claimed, though Matthias Forney and General Palmer (of the D&RG) certainly did make the trip.

Thank you, Bill for digging up Parker's report as well. This is great stuff.

Just the other day I saw a photo taken at the Didcot Railway Centre in England of locomotives similarly posed, and I though it would be cool to do the same thing at the WW&F. Now you guys have done it! Congratulations.

Great photos!



;D *This is not a complaint, merely an observation.*  ;D

Those photos* can be viewed in a larger scale in Brendan's NGDF thread, here:
https://ngdiscussion.net/phorum/read.php?1,424770

The photo size difference is a function of how the SMF forum software at WW&F is set up vs. how the Phorum forum software at NGDF is set up.  :)

* The NGDF thread does not have the B&W photo.
