The super 8 was a reasonable hotel to stay at. It had a small closet off the lobby that had a washer and dryer for guests which was most appreciated. Each machine cost $1 to use which was very reasonable. The room also included a cold breakfast (cereal, toast, juice, coffee) and some fruit which was of poor quality. And, they had a waffle maker and syrup which is one of my all time favorites. There was a restaurant across the street that served a buffet for supper.

Having flown in yesterday he had disappeared off to the local Harley shop to buy some new waterproof boots (apparently the ordinary Harley boots fail in this rather fundamental area).

We spent a quiet night in the East Fork campground, drifting off to sleep amid an odor of coal smoke... and awakened to a much stronger one. Seems the Durbin & Greenbrier starts the fire in its gear-driven, 1910 Climax during the evening before the first outbound consist of the work week. The locomotive is left banked until the fireman arrives, ca 6am, which is time to get serious about building a good fire and a head of steam for a 10am departure.
The Climax is one ...
This has been a mostly very good day -- full of excitement, surprise and a partial answer to yesterday's technology woes.
First, a short drive to Cass to see the Cass Scenic Railroad -- one of the reasons for coming this far south on the way to Minnesota. We took pictures of the train in the station, then asked if the train's route crossed the road anywhere where we might be able to get pictures. following the helpful directions, we drove along a beautiful ...
