    Here's a picture of 2 2-8-0's on my N scale layout. The signals are Altas's signal system. They work GREAT!

    I'm waiting on my replacement Spectrum 2-8-0. The first one never ran right out of the box. I'm hoping the second will be better. Is that green one a Southern?

    Great pic by the way. :thumb:

    That is a Souther locomotive. The other is Rock Island. I had the same problem and sent it back to Bachmann. It took 8 weeks! :(

    That is dried paint. Not the flash or wet paint. Some don't like it, but I do. That's what counts for me.:)

    The picture is the CSX maineline passing my place in Vonore, TN. Color is almost the same. I also used a differant color ballast, not the gray. I wanted to be differant. So that color would also stain the rails.

    No hard feelings!:wave:
