Great pictures !! :bounce1:
For the outbound lading.......
If there be a text'le factory, served by the line, Sag Harbor Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company's Sail Loft, could use a shipment o' sail cloth. There be two Schooners, two sloops, ( and, at some point an additional 32' Noank Schooner ) that'll be needin' sails.

It has been "one day short of" 15 months, since 100119 left the shops at SHS&D.
I'm very happy to see that it is still in good condition. The shop foreman, already has a "bottle of the best" chilling, for the return ceremony.
http://www.the-gauge.net/magazine/HOMap.jpg shows where the car has been. Straight line distances add up to 7,535 (approx) miles ( with an added 650 for its trip back to SHS&D ) 8,185 miles ( give or take) traveled, at the end of the tour.

I should point out that the above pictures were taken at the www.hotrak.ca June set-up. We are a modular club, and many members have 2 or more modules that they bring out to set-up and share. Some (like me) have modules in progress, while others do not. Module ownership is not a requirement to participate.

The pictures above are of modules built/maintained by:

Ottawa Yard (Ottawa East/Terminal Ave/Ottawa Station) - Boris Polianski

Oh yes it is !!!!! BBG100119 has returned to Cindys Harbor RR tracks, and is on its way to the shipyard Transshipment point to transfer a load of new sail cloth to the sail loft at SHS&D Co.
Now I have few to no excuses for not finishing the rigging of a schooner, and two sloops. :bounce1: :bounce1: :bounce1:

:hey: Let The Auction Begin !!! :cheers:

...and safe inside. Once she's been cleaned up, lubed, and inspected, she'll be ready. This has been the last leg of her tour. The next journey, The auction, will be starting soon now !! :cheers: :cheers: - - and then she's off to a new owner.

We're all happy to see this tour car make it safely to its origin. The next step is to find a new home for this car, and we will be doing that very shortly, so keep you eyes peeled for the start of a new auction.
