|Firing up and running the Canadian National #6060 4-8-2 live steam locomotive.
Video shot by Mike Massee at Bitter Creek Western Railroad. Published on Aug 17, 2016.
Featured on the cover of Live Steam Magazine Sept / Oct 2016 issue, Ernie Beskowiney put approximately 7 years and 35,000 hours into the design and construction of this flawless 7.5" gauge live steam locomotive. It is nearly entirely CNC'd out of stainless steel and is slightly larger than 1/8 scale. The operating pressure is 150 PSI and develops about 483lbs of tractive effort. It has pulled a train of 48 people without blinking. Here is Ernie firing up and running the locomotive at the Bitter Creek Western railroad.

|A 17 minute Video. The annual "Frostbite Run" at Iron Horse Park in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada.
Operated by the Alberta Model Engineering Society, the park is a public facility to learn
about railways and railway safety while enjoying a trip around the park on the 7 1/2" gauge
This turned out to be a really good trip with plenty of shots of our other trains and even a cameo from a full scale CP train at the 6 1/2 minute mark. .
|An 11 minute Video/Slide show created by one of our Junior members in recognition of 2013 being our 16th year of operation at our current location. Matt was 14 when he produced this video. Well worth watching all 11 minutes. Nice retrospective of the 2005 to 2013.|
