Wow. Looks amazing. Nice to see al the happy people, and I must say that even though we were prepared for a large turnout, it was more than any of us could have imagined, and well done by all who helped plan, and make this event a huge success.

The first time we turned the railcar on Bay 1 track, I wasn't paying attention to the crowd.  Stephen said that as we started to turn it everyone on the platform went silent and watched in awe as we turned it around.

I knew the first trip was smokey, but I didn't know it was that smokey. The name "Smokey Joe" lives on.

Very nice! Especially like the "meet" between the railcar and No 10 at AC!
