Friday we were at Glen Eagles Golf Club somewhere in the middle of Scotland. A magnificent place. You can fly in on your helicopter (or take one to St Andrews to watch the Open) or take a falconry lesson. No birds on Friday and unfortunately none on the golf course either. : (
A few photos from the course.
A strange look rock that looked like a face.
It was very windy all day as evidenced by the flag on 18.

An interesting reflection of the headlight in the exhaust.
The working gears of WM Shay #6.
A busy scene around the water tower with a freight passing. Each engine carries approximately 5,000 gallons of water.
In addition to water and coal, these engines require significant grease and lubrication to keep working. The engineer topping off WM Shay #6 prior to moving up the mountain.

I participated in the 2010 Cass Railfan weekend. Cass, WV is located in the middle of NOWHERE. Great scenery, but it is in the middle of NOWHERE. The Cass Railroad is an old logging railroad which is now operated by the State of West Virginia. They have done an outstanding job of maintaining and preserving the railroad. Here are pictures from Day 1 of the weekend.
Heisler #6 is steamed up and ready to go. #6 was pulling the passenger coaches up the mountain.
#6 making a pass at a remote crossing halfway up the mountain and then working up the 5% grade.
The Cass speeder followed us up the mountain to Whittaker. Good thing as we had a small derailment.
#6 works its way into Whittaker.
Back down the mountain, we returned to the shop for a tour and dinner. Not just the steam engines are old here.
The running gear on Western Maryland Shay #6.
The end of Day 1 brought a night photo shoot on a small trestle just outside of Cass.
Hope you enjoyed the photos. - Ross
