Berkshire Community College sponsored a very nice wine tasting event at the railroad on the 12th (which is why its under local events and not transportation)... All in all it was a great time and I had a lot of fun taking pictures of the inebriated folk and the wait staff trying to carry trays of larger than shot-size wine glasses on a moving train :D ...

Look at that line!

Live entertainment... and good at that...

And here we have Luigi from Mario Brothers... sorry Tom I just had to... you can get me back for it later...LOL

The other half of the Mario Brothers cast driving the train?...hehehheheh

Lots of happy people riding... and the only one of the wait staff that I cant remember seeing spill any drinks...

This lady came on in Stockbridge and led everyone in French sing-a-longs...and did a great job too!!

Maybe the guy in the glasses just didn't have enough wine to sing the French songs?

That looks like it was a good time!

Awesome shots Ross. Now that's my kind of day. Wine and trains. What a great combo. Just as long as the engineer isn't hitting the bottle. ;)

That's not true. I saw French's mustard in your fridge the other day.

That's for all those types that can't handle the bold flavor of Gouldens.

Wow, looks like a full load. I'm sure my wife would have loved to go on that... might have been the only way I would have ever got her on a scenic rail trip. She likes going to wine tasting events.

Sure was busy... we had maybe 700 people show up... and we maxed out our train at almost 400 passengers... (6 full cars)
