Finally made it down to ride it this year, and though the sky was overcast it did not rain at all; in fact, it even grew nicer as the day progressed. They pulled only two passenger cars (actually, a coach and a combine) and the gondola, but it seemed to be pretty full. My fiancee loved it, and asked lots of train-related questions about such topics as trackwork, whistle signals, and speed restrictions.

In all, we had a blast and cannot wait to do it again. Hopefully, they will have #18 up and running in the next few years so that I can show her what it is really about. Then again, she grew up two houses away from the engine house in Arcade (!) so maybe she knows more than me.

Recommend the trip highly to anyone, as it is a nice little railroad!
