    Awesome work!

    Once again, Casey hops in his time machine, goes back to his favourite time period, snaps a couple of shots, and brings them to the Gauge!
    Now my questions is this: is it really cheating if he scrathbuilt his own time machine?
    (and can I borrow it sometime?)

    cheers
    ;) Val

    One word: IMPRESSIVE !!!

    Just one (stupid) question: Why do most trestles have a barrel on them ? What was it's purpose on a real trestle ? :)

    I've seen them often and always wondered why they were there :)

    Thanks !

    P.S.: Very nice picture !

    Casey, It's a classic example of backwoods RR'ing. Absolutely fabulous modelling and photography.

    Thanks, everyone. :)

    Here's another from a different angle. The poor railfan who took these photos really had to scramble through the underbrush along the opposite shoreline to get in position...:D :D

    Re: Beautiful

    Drew, the cars are made up from SW's "Backwoods Work Train." You can buy the car kits separately or as a complete set. When the whole shebang is assembled, there are about 13-15 cars in the train. (I have been working on car #5 for the last several weekends.)
