Live Steam Article by Mike Massee

The Bitter Creek Western Railroad was the subject of a cover article this month in Live Steam and Outdoor Railroading magazine. BCWRR's good friend Mike Massee was the writer and the photographer for this article! The article covered BCWRR's Narrow Gauge Meet 2010. Visit Mike's Bitter Creek photo gallery, click here.

This is Mike's original photo from which the cover image was drawn.

And here's a picture of Mike heading out onto the mainline with his Chloe. This shot was taken during the President's Weekend Run at Bitter Creek on February 19, 2011.

This is how the cover actually ran.

This is how Mike suggested the cover look. How could any picture better express the fun and multi-generational nature of model railroading?!
