    Deano, Your photo of #6139 is a Rivarossi 4-6-2. Here is what an IHC 4-6-2 looks like:

    Mark, THANKS!:smilie: BTW, the shot of Arthurville is SLAP AWESOME!:thumb::thumb:

    Josh, AWESOME CNW!:thumb: ...oh, and GREAT JOB on the BNSF too:winki::mrgreen: .

    Charlie, THANKS for posting the CNW shot:thumb::mrgreen: , i hope you don't mind if i save it:smilie: . i have posted a pic with your last post in mind:winki::mrgreen: .

    msowson, CRIPES, your 100% correct:thumb: , guess i should stop posting so late at night, you'd think I'd remember what brand engines i have:oops::oops::oops: ...well, on the bright side, I'll never make myself look like an idiot again:rolleyes::toug::119: ...well, I'll tell myself that anyway:119: . looking at the IHC, my dads is EXACTLY the same, only black. i have to wonder if the IHC version is supposed to replicate a "light" Pacific?, or is that their version of a Heavy pacific?:confused:

    Kevin, i am not sure which one is correct, possibly both, the Milwaukee road had a few different Chippewa engines. darn good question:thumb:

    Franco, that 4-4-0 looks FANTASTIC:thumb: , GREAT SHOT!:thumb::thumb:


    BTW, i still feel the same about IHC steamers, dads is EVERYTHING i had mentioned in an earlier post:winki::thumb: .

    Nice shot, I'm sure there's a reason for it, but why is that smoke stack so huge like a funnel shape :eek:.

    Nice shots guys! :wave:

    Being a wood burne, I believe the stack acts as a large spark arrestor to keep errant sparks out of the surrounding trees and brush.

    Yup, I want to model a N-Scale version if...

    ...I can't buy one. I shot a lot of details but just thought I'd post a couple here. I was looking at all the great pics thinking to myself, "Poop, I never have time for- hey, wait a minute. I just stopped the other day and took some pics when I was tearing uP the countryside with my wife."

    I'm glad I could participate.

    P.S. Check out the different journal box covers on the trucks.

    Here's an old photo that I found in a box of negs and photos from my parents. It's a CNR train, westbound out of Hamilton, Ontario, near the High Level Bridge. I'd guess the date to be late-'40s-early-'50s. The boxcar right behind the loco looks to be a Pennsy X-31a, similar to the car that my friend Deano posted in Post #43 of this thread.

    Out of the photo, and further to the right along the top of the embankment that the photographer was on, is Dundurn Castle and a park where our school class - grade 1 or 2 - used to come for "field days". While the other kids were playing games, I was watching the trains below, at the west end of the CNR's Stuart Street Yard.

    Go figure you'd comment on the half done, CNW Dash 9 patch job. Got me an Espee Dash 9 coming too, for the same purpose.

    Now I just need to finish painting the CNW AC4400...

    However, 4242 must reverse in order to let UP #618 through. I honestly have no clue how the 618 got in the middle of this.

    Keep 'em comming!
