    Tyson,
    I can't wait for the Cass shots either, however I do have a few for here.
    Another shot of the SM&CH 2-8-0, on the Nantahala Midland.

    The SM&CH FT A+B F7a freight power had to wait on the dual gauge high bridge, while the narrow gauge line cleared, providing a great opportunity to catch these shots of the first delivery of Carolina Furniture via the Nantahala Midland's 50' box #5001.

    Pete, Did you letter that boxcar after your visit to Tyson's? You are quite productive, aren't you! Love the paint scheme on the F units.

    Ya, I tried weathering some rolling stock and was pretty disappointed when they came out looking old and dirty; had a heck of a time getting them cleaned up afterwords. Then there was the time I got stoned and washed my jeans. That didn't work out either:D :D :D

    What are the gauges of the dual gauge track? Did you buy it or make it? Anyone making dual gauge other than B-K?

    Gary,
    Tyson lettered, and weathered the boxcar. He gave it to me while I was there. The F units paint scheme is based on the EMD demo scheme for the SD60.
    Jon,
    The gauges of the dual gauge are standard, and 3'(in HO). I added the "third" rail to commercial standard gauge track.
