Re: Upper Mississippi Steamboat meet

Looks like you were steaming along side Tim Reichel and family! Great folks from the Minnesota contingent! I've been trying to make it out to the Eagle River meet for 3 years now... I've heard very good things about it!

Re: 5 Chime C&NW Locomotive Whistle For Sale

Hey Den! Yeah, she's a beaut! I have serious reservations about selling but I have the same problem as you... I don't have a boiler with the capacity. I'd rather trade for something I can hook up to my small boiler...

5 Chime C&NW Locomotive Whistle For Sale

Here's a nice 5-chime C&NW locomotive whistle for any of you midwest railroad fans out there. From the research I've done I believe it is at a fair price. That being said, I'm willing to entertain offers for $ or trade.

Thanks!

Re: great looking boat coming up for auction

I have to admit I'm torn not being a owner at this point. In one sense I agree that ~$14k is not nearly what this boat is worth in man hours and materials. In another sense it gives me hope that somebody like myself might be able to afford a work of art like this one day...

Re: Hotspur

Hey Den,

The email on that link comes up as undeliverable. Any ideas what his current email might be??

Thanks!

Re: The Minnehaha (In Storage)

Greg,

Nobody seems to know much about that boiler here. They pulled it off the bottom of Lake Minnetonka when they raised the Minnehaha up. It's just sitting in the dust in the Minnehaha wintering shed...

Re: "Chuffs Too" SOLD

Sold is a partial truth. He actually donated it to a museum. Such a neat boat! I hope it gets used.
