Today, the chapter’s train maintenance crew reassembled the chapter barrel train and readied it for use at next week’s Dog Mart. It has a fresh coat of paint and new wheels for the passenger cars. The steam boiler was fired up today and the locomotive runs smoothly. That might appear like a John Deere farm implement paint scheme but these are the colors of the Izaak Walton League. Come to the Dog Mart on September 25th, 2021 at 9:30 am and bring the kids and they can experience a ride on the chapter barrel train driven by one of our seasoned engineers.
This year we had a drone capture an aerial view of the 324th Dog Mart. This is a quick aerial overflight of the grounds taken from the drone flight path coming in from over the pond. Special thanks to Andrew Tindall for providing the drone views.
