    Extra! Extra! Read all about it. Spencer is leased to the CNJ

    Yes folks The CNJ has leased the streamlined pacific. It was necessary when CNJ #810 went in for a major overhaul. Spencer will wear #810 for the time that he is on the CNJ rails.
    Here Spencer is seen with a pair of H-15-44's in one sean and a Hudson tanker in the other. Busy.Busy.Busy.

    I love the CNJ logo on Spencer's side. My nephew received him for his birthday from me, and he looked nice pulling a string of N&W passenger cars.

    For the record, their are two A4s in North America...the Dominion of Canada and the Dwight D. Eisenhower (and 4 in the UK). I've had the pleasure of seeing the Ike at her home in Green Bay, WI.

    Try rigging something to couple him to your goods stock. Gordon, Henry, and Spencer all have pretty strong motors.

    That would put a large drivered loco doing a small drivered loco's work. A pacific is built for -------------------------speed------------------zoom.

    Coaches are heavy, especially in long trains.

    Clarabel has to be coupled on facing backwards because she's the brake coach. The way you have her on, the Guard can't see behind.

    No. Can't you tell, she's in America! She was converted to Westinghouse air brakes and is no longer needed to serve as a brake coach.

    Let's just hope Thomas has an easier time getting home than the Flying Scotsman had on his trip... :mrgreen:

    Not only can the Guard not see behind properly, neither can Clarabel.

    When you're not the lead sled dog, the view never changes.
