THE AVR WENT TO KITSAP IN WASHINGTON AS THE THIRD STOP ON THE RAMBLE JULY 8TH, 2006. WE BROUGHT OUR TRAILER FULL OF EQUIPMENT AND TWO LOCOMOTIVES. OUR PACIFIC #2365, OUR F-7 #202, PETER'S WOOD CARS, CABOOSE, STOCK CAR, BOX CAR AND REFRIGERATOR CAR ALONG WITH THREE GONDOLAS AND AN OPERATORS CAR. WE UNLOADED OUR TWO LOCOMOTIVES, ONE GONDOLA, ONE OPERATOR CAR AND PETER'S STOCK CAR. MEMBERS OF THE CLUB FROM WINNIPEG WERE, BILL TAYLOR, PETER ABEL, VIC ST-GERMAIN, LEN LARUE AND MARY-LOU TAYLOR.
WE SELECTED SOME CHRISTMAS MUSIC TO GO WITH THESE PICTURES AS ARRIVING IN WASHINGTON WAS A GREAT RELIEF AFTER COOKING IN THE 100'S IN OREGON FOR TEN DAYS. YOU MIGHT SAY WE WERE PLEASED WITH THE COOLER TEMPERATURE.
