    Ye 3-rail guys seem to have nice rosters.

    Here are a few of my o scale narrow gauge pieces...

    1st is an out-of-focus shot of Goose #3...there is also a #4. They're from Precision Craft Models.

    2nd is a Spectrum 2-6-0 which I converted to On3 and added Precision Scale's Bear trap stack.

    3rd is a Balboa (brass) South Park (or Colorado Central) Cooke mogul...which badly needs to be re-painted.

    4th is all three on the layout with the Grandt Line porter peaking above the goose to the left of the 3-way stub switch...with the working hand car sitting near the switch.

    The railroads shops might begin scratch building either an South Park 1883 Cooke 2-8-0 or an 1880 Baldwin 2-8-0...if someone can sell the road a set of drivers...or an 1874 Dawson & Bailey 4-4-0 if its drivers can be procured/kitbashed.

    NKP - very nice, I have always thought of adding either an On30 or On3 line to my layout.

    Brutus - The only differance in the RTR sets is the tender is plastic and the other engines have a diecast tender. I have never noticed any sound differance from a plastic tender or a diecast one. The motors and boards are the same in both engines. :rolleyes:

    I like that shot of the Amtrak F40PH. It makes me wonder if it is safe to run passenger trains through there with that guy in the hazmat suit inspecting those barrels for hazmat leakage.

    Says I'm Train Crazy???

    Since many of these posts are O, I'll start with this one:

    [​IMG]

    "G" seems to be reasonably popular. How about this one? (Yes, it's sitting on my credenza in it's own display case. People ask me if I used to work for the railroad! I wish...)

    [​IMG]

    Now for the finale -- my all-time favorite locomotive, in "S":

    [​IMG]

    I've just acquired right-of-way for the O and S equipment. Still working on permissions for "G"...

    Lots of great stuff there guys! Also love that G stuff, but no room around me right now unless I build a lot of elevated track -- maybe in a few years. Thanks for the info Tom. I got the ATSF set for Christmas, Ozzy -- I really recommend this set. John Fullerton has it too and with his pics he really encouraged me to get it. I'm going to wait a couple months for the to wear off on the Misses and then get that V&T set maybe? For some reason, I really like these 19th C MTH sets and these cars they are releasing a lot!

    The 8 engines of the Riverside Railroad

    My lmited roster:
    [​IMG]
    My first engine, CNW 4056, a P1K F3A
    [​IMG]
    My second engine, CNW 4242, an Atlas Trainman RS-32
    [​IMG]
    Conrail B23-7 #1992 taking out the Decepticons Barricade and Frenzy. 1992 was actualy my fourth engine aquired but the third to enter service, and thus third on the roster
    [​IMG]
    CN 6750, a P2K FA2
    [​IMG]
    C&O 1845, a P2K BL2. This is one of my all time favorite engines simply because of its shape, although the history adds more to its unique-ness
    [​IMG]
    Riverside Railroad 1116, one of the infamous Atheran Hustlers. 1116 is my first repair and custom paint job, and I'm pleased with the result (I had help, of course:oops:)
    [​IMG]
    PRR 9912, a Walthers Trainline GP9M. This one was a gift from PRRman:thumb:
    [​IMG]
    And my latest addition, Union Pacific 618, a Spectrum 2-8-0 Consolidation:mrgreen:

    If you'd like it to be a simple addition...On30 is an excellent way to add cheap, commercially supported narrow gauge.

    If you'd like to have a little finescale...On3 is tough to beat. But you have to want it as the track isn't available commercially. I'm currently embarking upon a working link & pin program.

    Buckeye... Love the C&S passenger train.

    Me, too; same reason - that distinctive shape. I have one in Bangor & Aroostook and one in MoPac paint.

    NKP - I do know how hard On3 is to find. We have this switch back layout at the Museum which is On3. We had to kitbash on engine for it.
