Railfan Pictures of the Week - 07/20/2003

The warning below is in reference to the last picture, which may be too graphic for small children.

Strasburg 475, 4-8-0 Twelve Wheeler, takes on water between trips.
Strasburg 90, a 2-10-0 Decapod, is done for the day and is getting a good cleaning.
Two of the newest additions, a hand car and a miniature steam train.
Strasburg 33, a GE 44-tonner, would be used later this day to shuttle around Strasburg 90 so the Dinkey could pull Thomas out of the maintenace shop.
Strasburg 1, a 20 ton Plymouth with a sparkling paint job, sits next to Strasburg's burro crane.
Strasburg motor car 03 sat behind Strasburg 1.

I have heard that some stars have to put their face on in the morning, but .......

Thomas was in the maintenance shop behind 90. While I was there, they brought 33 over to shift 90 to the other shop track, then the Dinkey brought Thomas out to put him in the other shed. I have the video, but it may be too gruesome for the little ones to handle.
