Well out of the all the people that said they wanted to come and were going to come, no one showed up except for Chris. sad.gif rolleyes.gif
But we had a lot of fun, in fact we were too busy having fun that I forgot to take too many pics, so I wont be sharing too many but I will be posting a few in the next few days. You know Chris and I are thinking of joining the organization and volunteering to help restore some of the equipment so we can hang out there more.
Chris got the opportunity to tell folks about the 4294 (cab forward) while the docent was on his break, turns out he knew quite a bit more than alot of the folks that work there biggrin.gif

All I can say is that you all missed a hell of an excellent day, well worth missing a day of work over. cool.gif

No problem.......I am just letting everyone else know about the fun they missed. We knew you were going to miss it as well as Shane. Cant be helped.

But what could be helped is the fact I was begged for months on end to arrange a tour of the facilities and when it comes down to it everyone decides they have better things to do and does not let me know until I am sitting there waiting for them to show up. That is what has me frosted. mad.gif

Well, I tried to give you advance notice, I didn't know the test would run over for more than 2 1/2 hours. Also, it's not that it was better to do... believe you me I'd rather go to the *real* SLW any day than take a test, even with Amtrak, but they only gave me one option. sad.gif Sorry! sad.gif

Can you believe they even let this guy near a locomotive? Here's Erik and a different perspective of the 6051.
