4th of July rail traffic had definitely picked up by mid-afternoon...

Joe Yetter's SP San Joaquin Daylight locomotive No. 2485 (a "Pacific" 4-6-2) heads out of the yard.

Art Reiter's USR heavy mikado (2-8-2) No. 4158 gets the once-over before steaming up. This loco is propane-fired; the tanks are in the boxcar.

Art Reiter running his Santa Fe GP60M.

Bear Mountain Mining Company No. 8 (0-4-2).

The signal crew (Chris, Bob, Kevin, and Dick) had their work cut out for them today.

Guess which way we're running today?!...

This Boston and Maine diesel came all the way from the east coast.

Sand Lake Mason and Western No. 47.

The signal crew gets all three colors, and at the right times!
