NRM 25th anniversary Weekend part 1 – Saturday

Wow!! What a day. Definitely one of the busiest days we’ve ever had. Despite a couple of minor glitches, we got through the day fairly well. We had really great crowds, and while the event wasn’t what I had originally planned, I think it went very well. Because I spent the majority of the day on the locomotive, I have very few pictures to share, but here’s a few I managed to get. My surprise to our visitors was a special 25th Anniversary cake, which I think was enjoyed. Really want to thank everyone who came out to support us on this weekend. We heard nothing but positive comments from first time visitors, and even our repeat guests. We thank you so much for visiting, as our volunteers have worked very hard to get some projects either finished, or further along, to show the progress we’re making. This is a brief report for now as it’s been a long, tiring day, and it’s almost time to crash. Sunday is another day, and in addition to what was at the show today, we will have our friend James Petroczi doing a forging demonstration, turning railroad spikes into knives.

Thank you again to everyone who showed up today. We look forward to seeing more visitors on Sunday.
