    An IC Mogul... is that one of the ones that went to Bevier & Southern?

    And whose is that 2-10-2? Can't make out a roadname, but the tender reminds me of some KCS power.

    OK, I know I am a bit late to vote (I could not go online since the beginning of this week, because my computer crashed. After I restored the system, I found out that the DSL modem did not work anymore. The modem is provided by the phone company, so I had to wait until they checked it and sent me a new one :curse:wall1wall1), but it is
    #2 – show us more!!!!!!!!

    Deano, your photos from the IRM are fantastic and I can’t wait to see the next set of pics. :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Hi Steve, nice to see you :wave::wave::wave::wave::wave::wave:.

    Steve, It is a great place! IRM is about 1-1/4 hours (worst time) from my home, and I get out there occasionally. What I like most is the availability of "prototype" to study for any of the models I'm working on.
    Deano, great pics! In the shot of CNW #411, the depot is out of frame to the right, and the baggage car, behind the power poles, is the souvenier shop. Multiple train rides come with the entrance fare, including the electric cars.
    The barn with the static, steam loco displays, is one of my favorite haunts. I also was able to get the details of the steam generator for an Alco( passenger ) RS during one trip there.

    Deano, thank you for that Baldwin :thumb:. It is a pity that no one makes an affordable plastic model of it.

    Oh BTW, talking about plastic models. Did you see that Athearn is planning to do a Genesis UP Gas Turbine in 2009? http://forum.atlasrr.com/forum/data/Jim%20from%20Valencia%20CA/2008718191742_DSC09575.JPG
    And I even found a prototype picture of this experimental gas turbine from 1953. Here is the link (though I am sure, you already have this pic in your vast UP archive): http://www.snowcrest.net/photobob/upl9.jpg

    But not the big centercabs. The ELS, last I heard, only has one switcher in regular use. SMS has a number of switchers and one AS-616. Incidentally, I haven't seen any new photos of their fleet in the past year.

    True. As far as I can tell, ELS still has 2. a DS-4-4-1000 and an RS-12. I know for sure the RS-12 is running.

    Jim, THANK YOU!, i really appreciate it:smilie: . it took a great amount of time to put the "IRM" post together, being a dial-upper didn't help either:roller: . the truth is, i did that post TWICE, the first time i was doing it i was 6 pictures from finishing it(out of over 80 pics), but i hit the wrong button, and lost EVERYTHING:eeki::frowns: . I was so ticked off i was just going to quit, but Wayne's "pep talk" got me to redo it that night:thumb: .

    THANKS GUS!, GLAD you liked them:thumb: .

    Kurt, WOW!!!:eeki: I didn't know that turbine was coming out:eeki: , its got my name on it though:mrgreen: . THANK YOU for the link to that turbine pic too:thumb: , i didn't have that pic, but i do now:twisted: .

    THANKS Matt!!:mrgreen:

    Josh & Triplex, THANKS for the interesting info on the Baldwins and ELS:thumb: .

    On my side of the tracks...
    After work, i headed over to WSOR's yard in search of Fallen flag freight, WHAT LUCK:mrgreen: , there were three strings of CNW coal hoppers there, about a total of 25-30 cars. notice the graffiti primed over, good way to get rid of that rubbish. i posted some of these in the "Fallen Flag freight" thread, here's one of them...
    [​IMG]

    Here's an oddity, check out the paint scheme on this side of the RailBox...
    [​IMG]

    Now heres the other side of the SAME Railbox(check the #'s:winki: ) ALSO, notice how the top of the roof is pushed up from forklifts pulling cargo out of it.
    [​IMG]

    Here's a composite mech reefer, not much rust is going to be on this car:winki:
    [​IMG]

    I was just about to leave WSOR, when these four UP MP15's FLEW by on the interchange track, man they were going fast. i have noticed since the MP15AC showed up at the Harvard sub, its always the engine on the point, then the MP15DC's, i wonder if the AC is better then the DC's, or just a "new toy":119: .

    After that i decided to head over to UP's yard, i noticed they put a new sign up too...
    [​IMG]

    I went to the North end of the yard first, not much anywhere up front to get shots of:frowns: , i DID notice about 8-10 Dash-9's & AC4400's in the middle of the yard, but sadly i have no access to that part of the yard, LEGALLY.

    Hey folks, sure i am all about trying to get the best shots i can:thumb: , but UP's yard is HUGE, and VERY BUSY, so getting in there, well, it just don't happen without getting busted. ALWAYS REMEMBER FOLKS, saying "Well Deano(insert excuse here)...." DOES NOT hold up in a court of law:119: , so when railfanning, DON'T BREAK THE LAW:winki: . ANYWAYS, i went to the South end of UP's yard, it was slam packed with Autoracks, i found this neat Fallen Flag there...
    [​IMG]

    Well, that sums up todays trip:thumb: .

    Sorry for all the rail fanning pics lately, haven't been modeling much:oops: , i have a few new cars to build and weather, among MANY other projects:roller: , just need to get motivated to do them.

    Till next time...Stay on track!:winki:
