Train 'feast'!


We know these Vancouver TraiNgang folks are mad about trains, but this really takes the cake...

25th Anniversary cake

The occasion? The Vancouver TraiNgang's annual barbeque, which this year also marked the club's 25th year.

These lads may be very good with trains, but fortunately the 'gang' has friends who can bake - thanks to Joanne Peterson for baking up a storm with this delicious train feast!
