    These were taken with a three megapixel Olympus D550 Zoom and a five megapixel Vivitar 3935.

    Something for the Union Pacific fans out there.

    This is a work in progress, it still has a long way to go.

    Here's about 3/4's of my locomotives.

    This one's usually a good draw, the abandoned steamer.

    A pair of E7's. Check out the rust on the white one.

    One of my GP38-2's. #4099 of the Gateway Western Railway, now owned by KCS.

    One of my two SD40-2's. KCS #666, and yes, there's a prototype for it.

    One of my two Atlas Interlocking towers.

    KCS #4030, a road slug.

    There are three shots of this crane car. Look for the flaking rust on the boom.

    Here's a car I've been working on. The roof walk has been removed and I'm getting to move the brake wheel down. Look at the peeling paint on the car end.

    Neat layout! That UP diesel sure looks sharp. The crane car photographs really well - I like all the detailing and wires.

    Nice work, Jeffrey, both on the trains and the photos. :thumb::thumb: Your new cameras are certainly a big improvement over the previous one and your ability to compose your pictures has also improved dramatically.

    I like the darker night shot best.

    Nice Job. I like the maintenance building. I am looking for a similar structure for my layout. Did you scratch build it or was it from a kit?

    That was from a Walther's kit that I got back in the mid-70's. It was part of a locomotive servicing facility.
