Our steam loco threw a pin

This happened while running, the loco jumped up and landed on it side

We had to re-install the pin

After getting the pin back in place we gently tapped it back into place

Day in Review

Sunday's grand reopening was a tremendous success! 85+ people paid us a visit. Some were waiting at the door for us to open. Lots of kids enjoyed the inaugural running of the Kids Layout. Many thanks to the member who were present and made the day hum. Even the folks from the " club across the tracks" joined in. Next up, we'll be open Sunday, June 27th. See you there!
