Rainier Live Steamers
- The initial stages of a new Live Steam club at Mineral, WA (neighbor to the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad) is slowly entering the planning stages. Tom Murray of Tacoma, WA donated his large 7 1/2 inch gauge trackage from his Estate along with ten beautiful locomotives. Looks like instant railroad and instant club.
- The tentative name for the new club at Mineral, WA will be the Rainier Live Steamers (RLS).
- During several weekend work-parties (depending on the weather), members of the Puget Sound Garden Railway Society (PSGRS) have rallied together at Tom's estate in Tacoma, WA and worked to remove over 6000-feet of 7 1/2-inch gauge track. The track will be inspected and new ties applied and then eventually re-layed at Mineral, WA. This is all a VERY labor-intensive project !
- Please see the ATTACHED photo of a recent work-party at Tom's estate by PSGRS members. Look for Mike Massee to be one of the first to run on the new track and the first to get great photographs !
