Our friends Rick and Lois run miniature live steam locomotives. Twice a year they gather at a friends farm in Fordland, Missouri with a group of like minded enthusiasts. We tagged along. We all camped on the property and rode trains all weekend. At night they got together and played bluegrass music.
Warming up the trains in the railyard.
When a train comes by, jump on. With over two miles of track several trains were running at once.
We rode trains late into the night. The red hot cinders puffed out of the smoke stacks and were quite a sight.
