|AN EVENING AT PETE'S RAILROAD
SEPTEMBER 6, 2006
GETTING DARK EARLY - We started at 7:00 but by the time I got the camera out it
was dark already. Carl brought a flashlight and it sure came in handy!
TRAINS A-RUNNIN - The Western Maryland RS-3 was briefly running side by side
with the coal train, which was being pulled by a Reading 2-8-2 Mikado. Both engines
have sound. Tonight's get-together was more about socializing than operating trains.
The trains were running fine, even with just a couple guys operating them. We had a
few minor derailments caused by stones caught in the crossing above.
HONEY DIGS INTO THE SNACKS - We were feeding her Cheese Doodles here and there
but she was still begging. I gave her some empty wrappers to dig into, and she loved it.
CHARLOTTE JOINS THE GANG - When she got back from a school event, Charlotte
joined us. Here she's joking around with Joe, who was talking about "Good Uses For Cats."
LOOK UP! IT'S A BIRD, IT'S A PLANE, NO IT'S....
It's Sunshine the Cat, showing off her treeclimbing skills!
