    Tom that is one great looking train ! Now with all those log cars, you have a justifiable reason for purchasing a Shay, or a Climax or a Heisler locomotive![​IMG] Thanks, John

    Great shots Gill. We see Tom's photos all the time. ;) Good idea to lay out track outside. My track would be covered with pecan hulls from the squirrels cutting pecans above. If did not live in town, the .22 qould stop that. Still does when they get too bad. :mad:

    Hi Gill, no I haven't been there yet, but have heard about it years ago & my buddy just got back from there a few weeks ago. I'm hoping to go next year. I thought right away you were affiliated with it when I saw your Shay & looked at your profile. I'm from Ohio. A lot of people say it is the # 1 RR to visit here in the east. I can't seem to dial up that one address you have at the bottom there. I also live not far from Spankybird (Tom) who has the pics. above of the log cars. How do you give emails out here on this forum ? Thanks, John

    HI Gil,

    We post some on the OGR forum, but mostly on the CTT forum. I have been reading this forum for some time and have been posting here on and off for a few months now.
