Hi all,

just to let you know:

Pied Piper has been baptized last Saturday finally.

We held a small get-together with neigbours, friends and fellow steamers and officially called the Road Loco PIED PIPER - referring to the song of Jethro Tull, not the fairytale character of Hameln Very Happy

As soon as I started to fire up the engine, it started to rain, so the ride around the block was cancelled but at least I got it under steam.

Just some impressions:

And Another One 24654f10

And Another One 59116210

Ready to be baptized

And Another One 6279c910

crowd is gathering

And Another One C93b9a10

Smoke starts

And Another One Aaf0af10

Running!!!!!

And Another One Be70b810

The name plate

Unfortunately some raindrops on the engine, but still baptized with some beer down the chimney ond over the boiler (when it was cold, still!!!)


Thanks to all who helped and supported me!

Cheers

Elwood

When Crystal got out for the first time it was -4c so only a couple people out to watch.

Hi Lynn,

insofar I was a bit more lucky, we had about +15 deg and welcomed some 25 guests in total, due to the weather conditions some hid under next doors carport Smile

Cheers
