    It's these models that have made me realize I really like the look of CN steam: all-weather cabs, transverse feedwater heaters and Vanderbilt tenders.

    If the truth be told, there's usually more picture taking than running trains going on when Professor Nutbar visits, and plenty of talking, too. :grin: :grin: Always an enjoyable evening, though. :thumb: :thumb: The trains do run, but usually just to the next photo location. :lol: :lol:
    By the way, all but one of the photos in the Layout (room) tour... have been put back into the thread.
    I will be restoring the photos in many of my other threads, too, but that may take some time. I'll post an update, with links, when those are ready for viewing.

    I have to admit that I was glad to have found the gauge simply because of the serious steam modelers here. As younger modelers enter the hobby, they model, more and more, the diesel era. And while I very much appreciate the fine work that goes into many of these more modern layouts (and recognize that, dammit, diesels have significant functional advantages over steam even in our model world :) ), I have been and always will be a steam buff.

    For that reason, thanks for the photos above. Your and doctorwaynes locomotives, knowledge of the detail that makes steam look "right" and of course the modeling of their era is invigorating! Doctorwayne's concept of a "family" look to his engines has in particular gotten me rubbing my chin...
