    California State Railroad Museum Railfair. Unbelievable for steam fans. Unfortunately it only takes place about once every ten years. Non contest because: a. It's 600 miles from home. b. No tracks within 25 miles of my home. www.pioneer.net/~fitzrr/promntry.jpg

    Fitz ... you got that right my friend! I have attended every railfair at the California State Railroad Museum in Sacramento, including it's opening day! I am always amazed at how many different steam locomotives of all types and from all eras are brought there!
    I like your photograph. You don't see much black and white phography anymore,
    but it sure lends for dramatic imaging when the light is right. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    For folks who do not have tracks within 25 miles of their homes, we'll make some exceptions [​IMG]

    Fitz,

    Does the Willamette & Pacific still run to Toledo? If it does, thats only 23 miles from Waldport.

    I got UP tracks at the end of my street...300 yards away. The only problem is they built a 10' sound wall, and the only traffic is auto carriers these days. Within a couple years BART will be running there too.

    I will be at the next railfair, I got a nice invitation from a Royal Hudson passenger to use their home instead of a hotel! Very nice!

    Happy Railroading!!
