COHS 2004 - Trip

The COHS conference ran from Wednesday evening through Sunday morning.  Most of the day Thursday was devoted to a "field trip" to visit a number of former C&O stations on the old Hocking Valley, and for a trip on the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway.

A number of people brought models, and I have some pictures of them here.

Our trip on the HVSR also included access to their shop, where they are restoring an 0-6-0 steam locomotive.  This is the tender and cab.
