    Thats right folks, Union Pacific's "Rock Valley Sub" IS back in action!:eeki: :up:
    My NEW layout is so far from finished, it isn't funny:oops: , but i have a couple areas close enough to take some shots off of:smilie: . A couple "firsts" on this roll-by, 1- this is the first time i have posted pics from the NEW gallery here:up: , and 2- this is the VERY FIRST roll-by that i have used a caboose:eeki: (don't ya love the 70's:mrgreen: ).

    ON WITH THE SHOW:smilie:
    Here are some shots with two of Rock Valley Sub's engines running a local through the outskirts of town:winki: . GP30 on the point, followed by a GP35:thumb: , hope you enjoy the show:smilie: -Deano

    Nice run-by Dean, and nice weathering on those cars.:thumb: I also like that first car in line at the crossing, with a trunk lid big enough to land a helicopter on! :thumb: :thumb: :mrgreen:

    Fantastic roll by, Deano. Great weathering jobs, I especially like the Greenbay & Western car. I won’t say these 70s cars like your Ford Custom 500 are beautiful, but there is something about them you gotta like... :mrgreen:

    While I was looking for WSOR pics on RailPictures yesterday, I found two pics of your wig-wags (I think they are the same). Some of them are still standing in Baraboo WI.

    Really nice work Deano. That signal looks great too. Love those white walls on that Ford.

    Nicely done Dean! Great looking rolling stock. I like the way the autos arrive in subsequent photos to reinforce the sense of time passing by.

    Great run-by. Nice weathering on the freights. I liked the autos also. I used to drive a '60 Ford "bullet nose" with the big hood and trunk.:smile: :smile: Good memories. I like the signal also. Did you build that?
