      2019 Ridge Live Steamers Winter Meet

      For those of you that might be wondering what goes on in Florida, one of the warm parts of the USA in February, we just completed the 2019 Ridge Live Steamers Winter Meet.

      34 - 7.5 inch Live Steamers, 57 other visiting diesel electric and other means of motive power, 48 campers and no clue how many day visitors. Lots of videos and pictures all over the Internet and Facebook.

      A simple search on Google of "2019 Ridge Live Steamers Winter Meet" will show you a little of the fun -

      The video of Bob Wattacamp's Pennsylvania H-10 climbing Tilley Hill is a perfect example of the last week at Ridge.  I've been fortunate enough to learn to run that engine over the last 3 years  and with Bob's encouragement I've mastered it pretty well.  Got to charge that hill twice, yesterday and topped it with safety valves spittin.  FANTASTIC!  That is the rulling grade on the mainline going that direction.  It is steep and tight with an "S" curve.  Great challenge.
