I finally got to steam up my Garden Railroad Shay locomotive. We were over at a friend's house on Friday at his Steam Up Get Together and got to run this locomotive before the rain hit. It rained all day yesterday so only ran trains inside. He has a great outdoor layout with concrete roadbed that has me really wanting to redo mine to cut down greatly on the maintenance. Looks like I know what I will be doing for a while on that. :-) It will be worth the work though to have as smooth a track as he does.
