    Interesting photos.
    One of the members of the Central Arizona Model Railroad Club is planning a Marx meet. The members with Marx trains are invited to bring their Marx trains and run them.
    I'll have to get some photos for you.

    Cool pix!

    I have seen some other neat effects done by slowing the train down, shootin gin the dark and lighting the subject with a flashlight, zooming in or out as the train goes by, and even running the train in reverse (i.e. away from the camera).

    Great work!

    Ray,
    When you have a date for this, why not contact Sam (S 3/6) and let him know. I'll bet that he'd like to go to that.

    Here is our Gost Trolley. You can see thru it and look at the car on the other side

    Hey!
    Love that Marx. There's something about "toy" trains that makes them wonderful. You're lucky to have that train!
