    Mike,
    Did you lease any of those earlier GE locos from SAR? I loved the U30C's, and C30-7's. Did the SD60's show up, too?
    All kidding aside, your layout is progressing nicely.:D

    No, they didn't want to part with any new power, the older GP's were all, the SD60's didn't last too long on the SAR, they did just get 10 new SD70's, they pull that sulpher train really good!

    Mike.

    Here is why I needed more power, I got the lower staging yard finished this morning at about 12:30am! Here are some shots of it.

    These next shots are from inside the reverse loop, looking from the start of the staging yard, to the end. Sort of a panoramic view.

    Is there anyway to put more than one picture at a time on a post?

    Wow, Mike!
    Great job! I was just about drooling over the keyboard just now...
    I was also enjoying your motive power and rolling stock fleet!

    The staging area will serve you well Mike.
    To get more than one picture at a post you must have your photos on-line somewhere say on a personal website then you use the IMG feature which shows in the menu above a post window. You can add multiple photos that way. If you choose to use the browse feature to upload a photo from your PC then only one at a time is allowed and the size is limited.
    If you use the IMG feature then your photos can be as large as you have them on-line.

    Here is a shot of a GP9 chop nose I did last night, it isn't done yet, but it will look fine in the yard.

    Mike,
    Is the multi-mark logo a decal, or is that painted on?
    I always wondered, the round portion would be tough to mask...
    Looking good, as always!
    You run in DCC, correct?
    That staging yard, is one giant revering loop, 5-6 of 'em, in fact. How did you wire it?
