Sutters Crossing 1998. Photo taken standing on the grade looking north.

And almost the same angle 3 years later in October 2001

What a wonderful change. The only way it could get any better, is with #9 under steam, and an antique car.

We've had the antique car there before, meeting #10.

I have shots of number 10 meeting the Model T Depot Hack at Sutter's during the picnic one year.  I also have some photos of the SR&RL rail car heading South through the crossing.  I may send them to Steve at some point.   I used a "survey style" photo because it gives you a better view up the line for a Then & Now comparison.

Oh. I have seen the photos of #10 going through the crossing with one of Boothbay's model T's waiting for the train to go by. Does anybody know if Boothbay will lend us the model T's again for the Annual Picnic in August of 2007?

I'm sure if we ask nicely they will.  Brian may have his house by the tracks built then so we can stage a "Fanslau's Crossing" meet.

What do you mean by that James? And where is Brian going to have his house at?
