We also added a contributors list and a site history for those of you who are interested. If you see any broken images or content problems, please let us know.

It's been 1 year since our massive redesign and upgrade last summer. Thanks to all who have taken time out to send us information or photos, or have provided a kind word to keep our enthusiasm up!

We wish to thank the late John Mika, for the concept of this website was his idea many years ago. He would have been very proud to see his baby take off.

"My suggestion is to hang out in the area on Tuesday or Thursday to wait for the train. It normally runs up to Peerless from the Finkl Steel area between 11AM and 2PM. You may want to wait at the point where the track forks off near the northern end of Kingsbury so you will know when it's coming. The Peerless job is handled at the same time as the Finkl Steel job, and the train exits a gate across Kingsbury to head north."
