    Just a photo to look at on a snowy morning. As I look out my window, it looks like a blizzard. Guess I'll go downstairs and get something done. Have a nice day all.

    Very nice shot Gary!
    Please excuse my ignorance, but what kind of loco is that? And who makes it? And do you have any more photos of it?

    Thanks!!:wave:

    Thanks everyone! Matt, that's a brass C&O K3a, made by United around 1980, imported by PFM. By far the nicest running brass loco I own. Here are a couple more shots of it, two were posted previously.

    That was Bachmann, and they arrived from Peachcreek Shops two days ago! With the drydock project, and the Ntrak mod for Val's BBQ/modular meet, it might be a while before any more progress happens with turning the Athearns into K2s.
