Default Rough and Tumble School Thank You

I am publicly thanking all the volunteers at Rough and Tumble for there time and gracious help.
I attended their 2007 Steam school and was treated to a variety of Engines, a Buffalo Springfield roller an amusement park train, A 1/2 scale Shay engine, a vertical boiler home made tractor and others.
The volunteers taught us using there own equipment, equipment belonging to Rough and Tumble, and even equipment owned by men who couldn't be there but allowed us to use their engines without them.

We learned a lot and had a great time.

I have some more pictures at http://lbpinc.com/Steam/ They are at higher res.

There are a lot of a KG because it was the pretty lady that day. There were a number of Fricks as well.

Thanks guys

Frank

Thanks

It is great that some have the gratitude to thank the fellows who work so hard to make this happen year after year. I didn't make it to the second day of steam school but had a great time teaching on may late Frick.

Frank,

Thank you for your kind words regarding our 2007 Steam School. We have a super team of volunteers at R&T that does a great time giving two Saturdays to our valued students so they can also experience "live steam" and operate our steam equipment. We all had a good time and were pleased the weather was decent for us to play. Attached are photos of the class and instructors.

Also, Steam Traction Magazine did a fantastic article including photos from our 2006 Steam School and plowing photos from our 2006 Spring Steam Up.
