    Tom, NICE John Deer freight:thumb: . i REALLY LIKE the Cab Forward, the front cab & tender style tells me its an AC-4/5?:confused: .

    Mark, GREAT SHOT of that train heading into the tunnel:thumb: .

    Ralph, SLAP AWESOME SHOT!:thumb::mrgreen: , I haven't seen that brewery on your layout before.

    ***************************************************
    MY two AC-12's:mrgreen: , the top one is an Intermountain, the bottom one is a Riverossi i picked up used this year. i have started work detailing the Riverossi, i put new Cal-Scale air pumps on the smoke box(i bought it with one missing), and have a few more brass parts to add on before i repaint it...a slow going project:119: .

    Thanks Charlie!
    Nice pics everyone. Can't get over that new camera you have there Ralph.
    Here's mine(Been busy working hard on the e-mag).
    Raw...Uncut.....No "real world backgrounds".
    I changed the flourescents from "kitchen and bath", or "soft white", to ones called "daylight". They are a little bit more pricey, but Man....They sure brighten up a room.

    Thanks for the complements - it's good to be here. Below is a shot of both ACs double-heading a passenger train, taken on the club layout.

    Wow Brian and Dean, those cab forward shots are fantastic! Powerful beasts!
    Here on the opposite end of the spectrum is a little bit of fun I got in the mail from my in-laws for my birthday (which is tomorrow). Its the Bachmann Gandy Dancer hand car. The little guys bend up and down while pumping the handle. Its cute and fun for a laugh.
