We had a visit from about 20 amateur photographers on Saturday. They wanted to see and photograph dilapidated and unrestored equipment. I was happy to oblige. Copies will be posed on their website so that we can choose the ones we would like to have.
The track inspection report has been received from Alberta Transportation. It documents the non-compliance findings which we will address in the coming weeks. Compared to former reports we're in good shape. Thanks to Don, Niall and PNR.
Donations are coming in regularly ;

They include pictures of 1392 in "Silence of the North", "Gunfighters", and "Days of Heaven" and many other "old time" pictures. There are pictures of action in Cromdale, CN Calder in the days when it was Calder Yards, and in the South Yards as well."

My sincere thanks to all of you.
Speaking of donations - if anybody has a small chest freezer and fridge-freezer combination to donate, we would be happy receive them. Some of ours are not reliable anymore.
