    On a hot summers day

    I went for a walk along the tracks and spied a few things worth taking a picture of. I have to say by looking at the quality or lack tere of when it came to these tracks which are used by NJ Transit I,m surprised there are not more incidents of derailments, I think 1 in 5 track nails were loose or coming loose flange plates laying on rotten ties a sad state for a yard which looks like it gets some considerable use.

    Well, I've been beating up on everyone to enter, I guess I'd better put something up or else stop bugging you all to enter... and I surely am not going to do that, so here's my first entry, nothing special, but a shot of the FP7's on the Verde Valley Railroad in Cottonwood, AZ.

    Somehow I missed this. Vacation and football/cheerealder practice has been keeping me running that I have been checking close enough.

    Great photos everyone! Not sure if I have anything that can compair.

    Here is my first entry. It is 1980 on the RK&M and a couple of Lehigh & New England U23B locomoitves are taking a break.

    I'm In!

    I thought I'd enter one each of prototype and model pictures.

    Here's my prototype shot. With the purchase of Illinois Central, CN aquired 4 E units (E-7s? - I'm not sure...) Two were left in IC colours, and two were painted in this spectacular CN green and gold scheme. I wish I had gotten better pictures, as I recently saw them again, and they've been repainted in a nauseous black, orange and cream coloured "noodle" scheme. Ick.

    Here is my prototype shot. Not a good shot but a piece of history none the less. Taken in 1980 in Garfield, N.J. on the ex-Erie Dundee Branch. CR switcher in EL paint renumbered crossing the Passaic River.
