Default 7.5" Gauge Trains

Hi all, is anybody into the live steam hobby? I have the 7.5" gauge trains, I give rides twice a month at my club in Torrance CA. I have gas now, and had many electric engines. Tons of fun!!

That's cool! Isn't there a big rally out your way every other year. I had seen some video a while back and I am going to try and get out to that some day. It was out west someplace and the layout was HUGE and attendance was very good, with lots of guys bringing the locos and rolling stock.

Yes many of the local clubs have meets twice a year, spring and fall meets. Lots of fun visiting a new track. Here is a photo of one of my train cars.[IMG][/IMG]

That would be Train Mountain located in Chiloquin OR. - 37 miles of 7.5" track on 2200 acres. Every 3 years they have a Triennial Meet where train owners from around the country bring their equipment to run. 2018 is the next one.

I can't see any of the pictures, I guess you're out of bandwidth?
Cheers!
