Saturday Night and the place was hopping with new stuff like a 15 car Great Northern passenger train in Big Sky Blue. That was Keith Wiles
contribution to the evening while Jim Bowden had his two beautiful Eastern Canadian Alcos pulling a freight train.
New member Robert Case had a new BN GP30 as his first power unit crossing Bertley Bridge.
Marvin added a chip to my forth RS-1 so we added that to my consist passing Bakersville.
Marvin's pride and joy is his MRL passenger train just like the real one that came to Spokane about a year ago.
Jim Bowden also ran this Great Northern 4-8-4 and not only is it gorgeous and it was putting out a neat smoke
pattern as well.
We had about 40 guests over the 4 hours of our open house but without media coverage we don't
get the crushing numbers that it becomes standing room only. These kids seemed impressed.
