Rusty Liebowitz Memorial Steamup
Woodside, California
May 27, 2006
The steamup community lost a dear friend on February 25th, 2006.  Rusty Liebowitz will be missed by all that had the good fortune to know her.  On May 27th Dan Liebowitz opened his railroad to a large group of small scale steamers as a tribute to Rusty.  There was plenty of excellent food to go around and all that attended had a great time.  We'll miss Rusty.

Coal firing in this scale is not for the faint of heart.  It's a job of work - but someone has to do it.  In this case; Jim McDavid.

Jim built his large boilered Ivatt Atlantic from a kit.  He did a great job on it and it runs like a watch.
