More nice photos! Thank you Joe! Williams with 3000 people is even smaller than Ely which has a population of only 4000. The question is, which is more out in the middle of nowhere? Williams at least has the GC nearby. Absolutely amazing what Mark Bassett has done with the NNRY considering where they are. It didn't take long for them to restore Engine 81 and get it steaming again! In contrast, we have the nearby Heber Valley RR and after 12 years of no steam, they still have not completed work on either locomotives 618 and 75! Mark Bassett has done brilliant work at the NNRY and the HVRR management is a disaster! I suppose they feel with nearby large population base they can get enough ridership with Diesel only and steam is not a high priority. The NNRY has work much harder to attract people to Ely! IMO, the NNRY is a national treasure!
Thanks again for sharing all these photos!
BTW, have you made it up to Durango? Fantastic Steam RR town!
Regards,
Kelly

Well w Interstate 40 going thru the middle of Williams, Ely takes the cake. I have been all over the West, "Really" and I have never been in the middle of "No-where" like in Ely. But I love the place. It has this charm to it and its always in the back of my mind. I will make another attempt at that Reno, Ely, Kanab route. Hopefully early spring, but have to be after the snows

Which brings to mind I watched your Toy man vids "really enjoyed". He's talking w his wife , It was the Santa Barbara one. He says "thats what we do go out fart around and enjoy. I thought, Wow, thats what I do only w my car and camera. Go out fart around and see what happens

Your absolutely right Basset and NNRR are a national treasure. He must have a Masters in Marketing. I get a wonderful notice from him almost weekly. (usually about money)
To fill up a Christmas train out there in the middle of "No-where" is astonishing and everything he's done
All the Best___Joe
