Last fall Dad and I got to attend the 30th Anniversary of the Walnut Creek Railroad. We had a wonderful time running the #778 on Stan Helper’s railroad and meeting other 4-3/4″ enthusiasts. I’ve been wanting to write a really great post about the event, to emphasize the wonder time I has just not happened. So I want to complete this post as a complement to the article written by Stan himself in the Jan/Feb 2017 issue of Live Steam.
In addition to thanking Stan, I’d like to thank his neighbor George Fish’s whose Walnut Creek and Southern connects to Stan’s railroad. Together these men provided a fine venue for running trains and hosted a wonder event with family and friends. Congratulations to the two of them and hopefully, I can attend the 40th.
Thanks to Lou Lockwood for providing the following photos.
