 Steam Visits North Dover

During an ops session a while back, a couple of good friends, Rob aka "Kaz" and Dave Haney brought over their steam locomotives to run on the layout during an ops session.

This New Haven crew earns their keep as they enter Marshall Cut on a slow order restriction.

Earlier they had arrived North Dover and swapped out a couple of milk cars.

The station platform is busy on this spring afternoon.

The 153 is one handsome switcher.

Crossing the New England River.

Tiptoeing out onto the trestle moments before.

Above the Salmon River.

Later, railfans capture images of a Boston and Maine steam locomotive making its appearance in North Dover.

Spotted earlier inbound in the state of Maine. 

There would appear to be a little red "anomaly" in this image.
Thanks for checking in everyone!
