National Historical Railroad Society Convention

Dear Readers:
There has been a lack of blog entries during the last few days. That is because my partner and I are in Iowa for the NRHS (National Historical Railway Society) convention. It is being held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa this year. Who would have thought that there would be anything interesting to be found in Iowa regarding railroads. Of all people I thought that this would be a great waste of time and money. I shall have to eat lots of crow however, since it has been interesting from day one and the day's events have been going from 7 in the morning to close to 8 in the evening, hardly leaving time for any blogging.
QJ steam engines in Iowa? Who would have thought? Brand new GE diesels? On an Iowa short line? That is actually profitable?
Well, do stay tuned!
