    Uhoh, have I chastised you in the past for not having the lights on? Love the weathering on the hoppers, and the trackwork looks great.

    You're killin' me Marty

    My switch to N scale was also a switch to the 1950's. Seeing that black EL C-424 is making me want 1.....or 2.........or 20!! That scene kicks butt!

    Great stuff Marty!
    I always like to see your work!
    That coal train winding through that S-curve just takes my breath away!
    And bein' a lover of Appalachian coal haulers, nothin' can bring a tear to my eye faster than catchin' a glimpse of some hard workin' Alco's earnin' their keep! Ah yes...that's my kinda railroadin'!
    Keep 'em comin' Marty!

    Marty, I hope...

    ...you won't mind but, I had- more so wanted to "colorize" your pic. It reminded me of a scene from a video I shot with Blake watching a coal drag thunder past the near now defunct Bethelehem works in Bethlehem, PA. The dust from the rails rose as the heatwave from the loco blurred the buildings in the background as the train came upon us. Take me there. It's all in the mind's eye.

    Thanks again.

    Mark:)

    Mark,
    Nice job of suggesting motion. Can you add light to those headlights? That would make it really hard to tell if it was a model or real.

    Thanks everyone.
    Sorry for the late reply, we had an unexpected out of town trip this past week and on Monday I could not log on here until today. What's up with that?

    Gary - I was just kidding around.

    Mark - Looks great. :D :D :D :cool: :cool: :cool:
    I see you even weathered the loco.

    Marty
