Am amazed at how much CB interior light there is via those skylight strips.
The place looks super, as does #9.
Marcel's work is Smithsonian quality!

Almost time for a barn dance!  ;D

A short (but important) #9 update was posted tonight including shots of the vacuum brake pots and a photo with something strange.

Tonight's post features a couple of things we rarely do:

(1) Post a photo album.

(2) Go out of town on a field trip. 

Take a look to see where our #9 ran as a young pup.

It's been a very busy week.  Check fb tonight for photos of #9 work, much switching, a new floor in the section house and some newly arrived rolling stock.

Tonight we posted a photo of #9's gauges in place.  Wes Carpenter did a beautiful job restoring and calibrating the loco/steam gauge and Eames vacuum brake gauge.  The vacuum brake gauge has not been on the engine in many years and it's good to see it back in the cab.

Another update is up tonight.  Check the views to see new rail laid along the woods track ... and it's already full!

We posted another Backward Glance yesterday.  Have a look to see what 1900 era scene we kinda re-created while switching the new car shed two weeks ago.

Today's post features photos of #9 outside for the first time since extensive cab and tank work.  Included are two unusual photos and an explanation of the many controls on the backhead.

So far 19,239 people reached, 233 shares, and 73 comments for the first post of #9 under steam (one of Stephen Hussar's pictures from Alna Center) and 21,601 people reached, 258 shares and 27 comments for Stewart's photo essay.  I think our biggest hit.
