Now that another safe and successful Steam in the Valley is behind us I wanted to thank everyone who volunteered and helped make it happen. From a servicing stand point everything went very well with no real issues.

I look forward to seeing you at the shop in the coming weeks and months. With Wabash Caboose, SD9, 1231, Plymouth, the 534, the  box car and now the Amtrak cars we have more projects going on than ever before so we need more help than ever before. We have several people taking leading roles on these various projects but we can use more people to work closely with those folks to help advance them. So if you are willing, get in touch those people leading these projects or let us know what projects you are interested in and we will get you in touch with the appropriate person.

Next weekend we’ll be running  the Pumpkin trains and before too long it will be time for the Santa Cabooses. If you are interested in helping with let us know and we’ll get you in touch with those who are organizing those events.

Thanks again and good evening.
