Kevin, Steve and Hansel -- Thanks for sharing your great images of Victorian Christmas. Someday I'll get there to see it all in person. And thanks to all the volunteers who made it all happen.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night and a great 2013!!

I have some left over clips from the event I plan to upload in the future...

Hansel,

The #52 on the back of cab did not survive the 2010 repaint.  I guess the stencil guy got tired.

Good video. It was nice to see you at AC, did you shoot any video there?  The run around move with #10 during the snow shower was pretty.  On most runs the passengers detrained on the west side.  Some of them walked over into the field to photograph the locomotive running around the consist.  As the day went on we got wet when the snain started (before changing to all snow) but we didn't care, the bonfire helped.  

The most challenging part of the day for me was driving back to Sheepscot in an 80 year old truck through that snow squall with no defroster and a vacuum windshield wiper that wouldn't run.  I had to bang on the glass to get the wiper to move.  I put a lit railroad lantern under the dashboard to get some heat on the windshield.  The original WW&F used to do that with the T railcar when it had the sedan body.

The "Green Hornet" in action looks like an ant dragging a dead caterpillar. Where's the romance?  The ditch lights are the final stake in the heart.  :->

Don't forget Dwight Winkley, a major, major contributor to the clearance work.

I'll second that. I've known Dwight since about 1960. He is ALWAYS THERE where ever and whenever needed.
