We had great weather for an open house a few weeks ago! David and Sharon’s new garden layout reflects the hard work they poured into this wonderful creation. It was exciting to see all the garden colors and the long bridge over the pond! David said a bridge was one of his top requirements when he started planning the layout. In addition to the garden layout, they setup a loop of track in the grass to run another train. All in all, everyone had a great time outdoors with trains and sunshine! Enjoy the photos and thank you David and Sharon for a great open house!

Bud Hunter was able to go catch some of Big Boy’s action on the high iron in Rochelle, IL this past Tuesday after it had been on display in West Chicago. “This is an amazing steam locomotive!” – Bud
Additionally, my wife Sarah made for some arrangements to go up and see the Big Boy in West Chicago. So here are a few photos:
Word was passed on to me that Marion was back in the hospital. Cards and notes of encouragement would be appreciated.
