    They might as well be. It seems like I play with them just as much as my 4 year old does. Is that a problem?

    Earlier this year I took a bit of heat for running Thomas on the club's portable layout during shows. Took a special vote to keep him...sigh.

    "Steam locomotive No. 7 is a June 1927 product of the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It has an 0-4-2RT (rear tank) wheel arrangement. It is a 30-inch narrow gauge logging locomotive that worked for many years on the Kiso Railway in the forests of Japan. Also known as the "Dagny," on La Goleta & Shoreline Railroad, it was donated to the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum by Phillip Goldman of Goleta, California. The locomotive is currently under restoration. Your donations towards this effort are greatly appreciated."

    I never stop being surprised by the variety of design discovered surfing for these pix!!:D
    This one is definitely different!:thumb: If she's not a candidate for an On30 model,
    I couldn't tell you what is!

    An opportunity to introduce the B&MC ExteNded's newest queen bee, a Santa Fe Northern #3780, fresh from the Marinaccio Shops in Arizona, running under her HO counterpart #3781, quietly on display just above the tracks. That's makes three 8s, right?:thumb: :D
