Field Trip: GHLS Celebrates Their 35th Anniversary!

Click on each image for a closer look!
The Golden Horseshoe Live Steamers of Hamilton, Ontario were first formed by a small group of live steam enthusiasts on June 15th, 1975. So today was our 35th Birthday! To celebrate the occasion, we hosted a birthday party at our track at the Hamilton Museum of Steam and Technology. Over 35 people attended the event and many of those attending are familiar faces at Roundhouse Park as a number of the GHLS members are active in the TRHA and especially in our miniature railway development. Members of the other miniature railway clubs in the Toronto area were also invited and many of them turned out for the party as well. A number of them are also active in the miniature railway in Roundhouse Park.
There were probably more than a dozen engines running at the event. We spent the afternoon operating the trains catching up with each other. We then feasted on hot dogs and hamburgers and salads at the supper time barbeque. After a brief bit of club business, we resumed railway operations and operated until almost sundown.
The weather was perfect - neither too hot nor too cold. A great time was had by all and ideas formed among those of us who are involved in the Toronto Railway Heritage Centre about the possibilities for similar events in Roundhouse Park.
