Here is a link to the photo page for our 500 ton steam locomotive.

Our best guess is a completion date in early 2015, and an excursion in 2016.

This is putting the cab on the locomotive for the open house Sept 28.

We haven't seen any rodents since the cats came on board. With both Hanta virus and Black plague here we work to keep the mice out.

More photos, also note that past work reports are now accessible on the club page.

If this needs  to be in another topic please move it.
Rather than resurrect an old thread,

Boiler testing has started, we hope to run late this year.

Excellent news.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.
