2014 Ardenwood Farm Railfiar -- September 2, 2014

Yesterday we went to the 14th annual Labor Day Railfair at Ardenwood Farm.  It was moderately warm. Two steam locomotives operated.  Ann Marie, an 1890 Porter 0-4-0, was there for the sixth straight year.  Antelope and Western 1, an 1889 Porter 0-4-0, was back for the first time since 2011.  There was only one train, so the locomotives swapped each time the train reached Deer Park.  There were big crowds, so we never got to make a round trip. 

Traffic was light going over and coming back, but terrible when we got to Highway One back in Pacifica.  The combination of a bright sunny day and the detour for the bridge replacement had everything backed up.
