Ok guys, with the success of our last tour just behind us we are planning the next already! The day will begin early in the morning at the 190 slope mine tour. now for those of you that were on the last 3 field tour, like i said, all tours we give will be different. so just because you were already in the 190, or anyone that was at the 190 slope before this will not be a normal "tour". after surfacing from the mine we will make a half hour drive to our restoration and operation facility where we will have mine car spragging demonstrations, discussions on our mine equipment, and the highlight....... everyone that attends will be checked out to operate our 1926 Whitcomb storage battery locomotive. Again, space is limited to 30 guests, and the cost will be $30.00. that will cover the cost of the mine tour and..... FOOD! we will be serving "cook out" style hamburgers and hotdogs with chips and what not. so, sign up by sending me an email for a fun day of going underground, running some mine equipment and good ol food!

I gave Chris my pics, but will post some here later in the week. For now, I have to post this one as a caption contest.

Any ideas what was going on?
