Bitter Creek Western is a 7 1/2" gauge private railroad. A video of the event can be seen at http://www.bcwrr.org/121104.html

They are plastic. But they sure look like cement though.

That fine looking gentleman behind the steeple cab does look very familiar. Enjoyed a ride behind that "engineer" several years ago and had a great time.

From what I have heard, he has pretty much given up building a RR here in the Arroyo Grande area. The equipment is still at his warehouse in the area.
