    OT-1 (empty ore cars going to the “Cat Pause Mine”) out on the main has just crested the grade out of Jacqueline Heights, is about to come off the steam and start the long drift down to the mine.

    Westbound S.P. Passenger

    An S.P. Mogul coasts up to the Alpine station. Passengers who arrived on the Eastbound and Westbound and headed for Terlingua will grab a quick breakfast at the Gage Hotel. They have about 45 minutes before the A & T passenger train departs for Jacqueline Heights and Terlingua.

    Busy Time in Apine

    Fortunately the wind is carrying the smoke and cinders from three locomotives away from downtown. The S.P. freight has backed into the Alpine yards to drop cars bound for points along the A & T. The 2-8-0 in the foreground will tack Westbound (El Paso) cars onto the S.P. While this is all going on No.10 waits patiently to pull the morning passenger run up to the depot

    The S.P. Departs Alpine for El Paso

    As soon as the departing S.P. caboose clears the switch, No.10 will pull the passenger train up to the depot.

    Enroute to Terlingua

    About an hour has past - No.10 has stopped at Jacqueline Heights and is heading out onto “The Whiskey Creek Bridge” for a long up-grade haul to “Tanglefoot Curve” around “Cougar’s Gulch”. That's it for this week!:wave:

    Thanks!

    Marc, Robin,

    Thanks for the comments.

    Marc, it's only 9:30 AM, I'm sure Whiskey Creek Falls will get will get photographed before the "Day" is over.

    Robin, that shot of the Westbound S.P. freight surprised me. The coaling tower really towers over the picture. That shot is one of the reasons I'm am having so much fun with this project. Not wanting to bore the life out of "The Gauge" members is forcing me to look for new angles to shoot from. In effect, I'm looking at my layout from places I've never been before. Fun!:D
